BASE Support Removal Machine
Clean your 3D Printed Parts faster
The patent-pending BASE offers the largest envelope in the Support Removal series of machines and delivers uniform, high-quality results for every part, regardless of geometry, with short cycle times to meet high-volume production needs.
Rely on the patent-pending BASE Support Removal for superior support removal for all 3D printed materials, including FDM, SLA, PolyJet, CLIP, and more.
Post Processing Solution
Support Material Removal
- The BASE provides delicate to robust support removal with higher throughput using Volumetric Velocity Dispersion (VVD) technology to ensure complete part coverage.
- The system is ruggedly designed for the largest additive manufactured parts, with an envelope measuring 40″ L x 27.5″ W x 26″ H.
PostProcess has taken the guesswork out of post-printing by creating pre-programmed recipe formulations designed from data. Instead of trial and error resulting in scrapped parts or inconsistent results, you get the desired finish every time at the touch of a button.
By combining proprietary AUTOMAT3D™ software program with precisely controlled energy and exclusive eco-friendly detergents, the BASE delivers consistent, hands-free support removal for 3D printed parts. The solution accelerates your operations with features like intelligent cycle time programming, customizable settings, one-touch repeatability with recipe storage, and pre-programmed preventative maintenance schedules.
PostProcess have thought of all the ways to make your post-printing more efficient – built-in rinse capability to ensure detergent and residue are eliminated after the supports have been removed, a counter-weighted vertical sliding door, and a viewing window into the LED lighted chamber. Utilizing noise reducing features for a low dBa, the BASE All Process ensures minimal additional noise is added to your production floor environment.
All of the patent-pending engineered solutions have been developed for high-performance and optimized to use eco-friendly detergents and media. Detergents are available in pre-mixed 5 gallon and 55 gallon containers. Concentrated versions are also available.

Why you need a BASE Support Removal Machine
3 Advantages of using an automated Support Removal Solution for 3D printed parts
1. Consistent Results
PostProcess ensures that supports on every part are consistently and completely removed — no breakage and no missed supports. Reliability that each part will be identical all the time, every time.
2. Reduced Cleaning Time
Whether production is in the tens, the hundreds or the thousands, throughput is crucial. PostProcess reduces the cycle time for removing supports and eliminates the manual post-printing ‘bottleneck’.
3. Greater Productivity
The PostProcess BASE Support Removal machine can work on numerous printed parts simultaneously. Enabling companies to focus on higher-value activities.
