spray lacquer off-gasing duration

I used 3 coats of Deft semi-gloss rattle can lacquer and polished it lightly with some bees wax. How long should I expect for it to off-gas/cure?

That is a hard question to answer. Off gassing times are dependent on both the coating used and the environment it's in. A closed space will off gas for a longer period than when it's exposed to more fresh air. Off gassing can for the most part be done in a few days or could take a month or more. Most paints take 72 hrs to 30 days to cure.
