MINNEAPOLIS, MN: To tackle the issue of time-consumption and hard work involved in the cleaning and processing of 3D printed models, Stratasys, the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, has released a new soluble support material, SUP706, for PolyJet triple-jetting 3D printers.  

Available as a software update on all Stratasys PolyJet Triple-Jetting 3D Printers (Object260 1/2/3 and Object350/500 1/2/3), the new material mechanizes post-processing of 3D printed parts in a simple two steps- soak and risk process. It is combined with hands-free support removal for optimized efficiency and diminishes the time required to clean 3D printed models, which enables companies to effectively accelerate to high volume production.

“The development of SUP706 provides a great combination of advantages for 3D printing users. 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,” says David Tulipman, Director of Product Management, PolyJet consumables at Stratasys.

Moreover, the new support material is compatible with all PolyJet materials except hearing aids and is more useful for fast paced, high production environments, like service bureaus and internal prototyping shops.
