Stratasys Introduces Soluble Support Material For 3D Printers


SUP706 is designed for PolyJet triple-jetting 3D printers. The new support material significantly reduces the time and manpower required to clean 3D printed models, enabling companies to efficiently scale-up to high volume production.

SUP706 automates post-processing of 3D printed parts with a simple two-step, soak-and-rinse process, giving users the ability to maximise productivity while achieving a low cost-per-part. High-production environments including service bureaus and internal prototyping shops will experience a faster and easier support material removal process.

‘The development of SUP706 provides a great combination of advantages for 3D printing users,’ said David Tulipman, director of product management for PolyJet consumables at Stratasys. ‘Owners of PolyJet-based 3D printers can now print small, intricate features with greater reassurance, and clean several parts at once, enabling high volume 3D printing that’s both cost-effective and hassle-free.’

SUP706 is available as a software update on all Stratasys PolyJet Triple-Jetting 3D Printers (Objet260 1/2/3 and Objet350/500 1/2/3) and is compatible with all PolyJet materials, excluding hearing aid material.
