A closer look at 3D Printing Support Structures and their effect on part wash time

Support material used to fill in the channels.

Soluble Supports The use of soluble support material lifts one of the biggest barriers in designing for Additive Manufacturing (AM), which is the generation of complex structures and embedded channels within parts. Soluble 3D Printing Support Structures are designed to dissolve in a wash station, leaving only the model material behind. For context, the “wash…

How to 3D Print Parts with Moving Components in One Print Job

The final hinge print.

3D printing fully assembled, multi-component parts in a single job allows you to see dynamic components working in their prototyping stages. Rather than 3D printing smaller parts and assembling them together, you can reduce the workload by printing the full part in a single print. Once the supports are washed, you have a seamless, perfectly…
