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."
