Building polyjet parts with internal cavities and very fine detail could be difficult to clean with the pressure from your water jet. Not anymore! Stratasys has a soluble support for all triple-jetting polyjet systems. The SUP706 support material works with all polyjet materials. The ability to use the SUP706 will give you freedom to design intricate, delicate and multi-material parts that can be easily cleaned.
The SUP706 support material can be removed from your parts by using the following methods. Hands-free -just drop in the cleaning solution tank, Semi-manual - quick manual support removal then place in the cleaning solution tank and finally Water-jet for most support removal then place your part in the cleaning solution tank. I'm sure by now you are saying to yourself this is great but how long does it take. Well, if you have ever used an FDM machine the process is similar. Support removal depends on part geometry. Obviously a cube with hundreds of holes will take loner than a tube with a 1/4" I.D. As you can see the SUP706 will lower your labor cost. You could place a part in the cleaning tank, go home and it will be clean and ready for you in the morning. Just a quick rinse and away you go!!
