3D-Fuel™ – HydroSupport – Water Soluble Support Material
- Completely Dissolves in 12-24 Hours
- Use as Support Material
- Easiest Dissolvable Material to Work With
Dissolves completely in water and is much easier to print with than PVA filament. Because it dissolves in water, HydroSupport only needs to be soaked a few hours to easily work supports off by hand, or 12 – 24 hours to dissolve completely. The process can be sped up further by using warm water and agitation – for example, by using a heated ultrasonic tank.
Water Soluble Filament
HydroSupport is non-toxic, meaning it can be rinsed down the drain without harming the environment or wildlife.
This water soluble filament has a high tensile strength and feels like PLA when printing is complete. Use it as a support material to print large overhangs, intricate inner geometry, and deep cavities.
NOTE: Because HydroSupport breaks down in water, it is sensitive to high levels of humidity in the air. For best results, store unused HydroSupport filament in a sealed container with desiccant.
All 3D-Fuel 3D printer filament is manufactured in our own production facility located in Fargo, North Dakota or in Moville, Ireland (depending on customer location). We have complete control over the manufacturing process and are able to ensure consistent quality for every spool. Learn more about 3D-Fuel filament quality.
Variable diameter can cause big problems in your 3D printer. We use a multi-axis laser measurement system to control our filament diameter and ovality in real time during production. Every spool has the diameter and ovality measurements listed right on the box.
500g(1.1lbs) of HydroSupport – Water Soluble Support filament arrives on an easy-to-use plastic reel and is vacuum sealed with a desiccant packet to keep out any moisture.
