New materials and developments in 3D printing happen almost on a daily basis but the release of the new Infinity Rinse Away support filament really grabbed our attention.
Complex 3D prints often require supports to ensure the printed product doesn't fall into a messy heap. Traditionally, these supports have been made of the same plastic filament as the print itself. This has meant we've had to cut away the supports and clean up the print afterwards.
The introduction of the Infinity filament for the Cube3 and CubePro printers overcomes this issue. Infinity is a water soluble and biodegradable corn-based plastic that can be easily washed away from your PLA print using the dual filament cartridge option on your Cube3 or CubePro printer.
Infinity allows for much more complex designs on the desktop printers bringing new opportunities to engineers, architects and many more professions looking to prototype and manufacture products using 3D printing.
We've just ordered our first batch of Infinity filament and are really excited about trying it out. In the meantime, check out the video below to get a better idea of how it works.
