Stratasys introduces water-soluble support for J35 Pro and J55 Prime

Stratasys introduced a new water-soluble support material, WSS 150, for two PolyJet 3D printers – the Stratasys J35 Pro and Stratasys J55 Prime. WSS150 allows users to remove the support material from their prints easily and hands-free using tap water or a conventional dishwasher with no additional chemicals.

The new support material allows designers to create prints with delicate, complex structures or with intricate details and channels without worrying how the support materials will be removed. WSS150 also is ideal for high-volume production as multiple prints can be cleaned simultaneously and hands-free as opposed to handling and post-processing each print individually. To remove the support material, prints can simply be submerged in tap water, or for faster support removal, prints can be placed in a professional or conventional dishwasher.

“We are very impressed with the parts we printed and cleaned using WSS150,” said Christoph Dollbacher of S3D-Repro GmbH, a 3D printing service provider located at St. Polten, Austria. “As a 3D part service provider, removing the support from many printed parts typically requires hours of manual work. While beta testing the new support we received a production order for 1,000 parts, using WSS150 we were able to simultaneously clean a large number of parts with practically no effort and we were able to fulfill the order on schedule.”

The J35 Pro and J55 Prime 3D printers allow users to produce prototypes, models, and end-use parts in an office environment. With the introduction of WSS150, users can now more easily integrate 3D printing into their workflow without the need for expensive, messy, or cumbersome post-processing systems.

“WSS has allowed our customers to more easily adopt and integrate 3D printing into their design processes and workflow and has enabled us to further expand the in-office use and accessibility of 3D printing. Service providers can now manufacture and clean hundreds of parts simultaneously, with minimal labor and with a more environmentally friendly process,” said Oren Zoran, Product Group Director for Stratasys. “The ability to easily remove support material is especially crucial when engineers design complex parts with intricate areas, or when architects create designs with thin, small-scale and easily breakable elements that would require time-intense manual post-processing.”
