HONG KONG, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stratasys Asia Pacific, subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSYS), the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, introduced a new soluble support material -- SUP706 for PolyJet triple-jetting and dental 3D printers. The new support material significantly reduces the time and manpower required to clean 3D printed models, enabling companies and dental centers or clinics to efficiently scale-up to high volume production and produce delicate, multi-material models through an automated post-processing procedure.

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."

SUP706 is available as a software update on all Stratasys PolyJet Triple-Jetting 3D Printers (Objet260 Connex1/2/3Objet350/500 Connex1/2/3 and Objet260/500 Dental Selection) and is compatible with all PolyJet and dental materials, excluding hearing aid material.
