Solidscape, Inc.’s stronger and more durable 3ZSUPPORT material is able to produce parts that are easier to work with, while retaining precision and characteristics required for investment casting. 3ZSUPPORT material automatically generates a structure to protect the part during the build process, which saves labor by not requiring the need for CAD designs to configure support structures during the design of new parts.
Once the printing is completed, labor is saved again because the 3ZSUPPORT material completely dissolves away in a liquid solution, leaving an extremely smooth finished wax part of intricate geometries without the need for manual refining.
3ZSUPPORT material now comes in distinctive color-coded, uniquely-shaped “crayon” forms offering simplified dust-free loading of pre-measured amounts that eliminate operator error. 3ZSUPPORT is safe and non-toxic and does not require any special waste disposal.
