After finishing the heated tank and hoses, we managed to extrude liquid wax with great control.

We had to keep the temperature quite high, about 3 degrees over the melting point, else the wax create a plug on the extruder tip when cooling the flow with a cooler.

Tomorrow we'll mount all the components to the printer to start experimenting.

I'll take some photos and videos!
