3D printers with FFF/FDM technology make it easy to carry out all kinds of workpieces, even those that contain parts suspended in the air thanks to the supports that are generated with the laminating software on which the piece is supported. But if these supports are created from the same material as the one used to create the part, for example PLA, it becomes difficult to separate them from the part once the impression is finished. That's why PolyMaker has created the PolySupport, a filament with a set of features that break with all kinds of impediments in 3D printing.
The most outstanding characteristics of this filament are:
1-Fast and easy:
The secret of the PolySupport to make it easy and quick to print is the great adhesion between layers. The bonding between layers is strong enough to maintain the structure and thus be removed by hand, without the need to use power tools or a complicated post-processing, which would cause a considered increase of the time to get the part released from the supports.
This filament presents a quality that few supporting filaments have, and is that it doesn't adhere to the model, but it supports it without there being a union nor a fusion between the support and the piece. This becomes a piece free of unwanted debris to get the desired piece.
3-Single or double extruder:
Another advantage of the PolySupport is that it can be used both in a single extruder (where the material composing the part and the support would be the same), as in a double extruder, where it's used only as a support material, normally combined with PLA. In case of using this material as a support and material of the piece, it's recommended to use a fill of 50% or more, so that the model is resistant and functional in a similar way to the PLA.
Compared to other carrier materials that are very sensitive to moisture and temperature, this filament is resistant to moisture absorption and temperature changes. Still it's recommended to store the PolySupport in its original reusable bag so that the filament can always offer its maximum performance.
PolyMaker to maintain its high standard in the filaments for 3D printing, guarantees the quality of its products and in this case in particular the PolySupport, realizing up to eight controls with a high level of exigency to guarantee simple, reliable and precise 3D impressions to all users.
PolySupport coils come in a high tensile box in which the general product information is shown: color, diameter, filament quantity and recommended print temperatures. To know more about the PolySupport inside each box there's a brochure with detailed information about the product. Polymaker coils have calibrated marks that indicate the approximate amount of filaments remaining, which helps to know if the amount of material available is sufficient for the next 3D impression.
In the field of 3D printing there are also other specific filaments to perform the support function such as HIPS (with ABS), PVA (with Nylon) or Lay-Cloud (for flexible materials such as FilaFlex or Flexfill 98A TPU).
