NEW Water Soluble Support Material from Stratasys
The removal of support material from delicate 3D models can be difficult and, in many cases, unachievable. This may lead designers to limit their prototyping requirements or even compromise on design. Mechanical support removal, from complex structures with intricate channels or holes, comes at the cost of possible damage to the part, risking additional time and costs.
On March 1st, Stratasys announced the highly anticipated water soluble support solution for their PolyJet range of 3D Printers. The new WSS150 is making post-processing even simpler, enabling users to remove support material in just ONE step using regular tap water.
WSS150 is a water soluble support material for easy, hands free removal in a single step without the risk of damage. For fast support removal, use a standard or countertop dishwasher or alternatively, for delicate, intricate models or parts with internal cavities, just place in a vessel filled with regular tap water.
