Stratasys introduces hands-free SUP706 PolyJet soluble support material for high volume 3D printing

Stratasys, the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, introduced a new soluble support material called SUP706 for PolyJet triple-jetting 3D printers. According the company, the new support material could significantly reduce 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 maximize 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; Objet350/500; Objet260/500 Dental Selection) and is compatible with all PolyJet materials, excluding hearing aid material.
