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,” explained 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.
Stratasys are exhibiting on booth G4O at formnext along with its entire range of 3D printing solutions all the way from the desktop market with its MakerBot subsidiary through to industrial applications and strategic consulting.
