Complex three-dimensional shapes often require a sacrificial, easily removable material as support for overhangs. A sacrificial material also eliminates the requirement of having a flat surface on the printed part to attach to the platform.
This sugar derivative can easily be processed as a melt in prolonged jobs with no measurable degradation. The material can easily be removed after printing by placing the completed part in a distilled water bath at room temperature, dissolving the sacrificial material away completely within a few minutes.
The material is biocompatible and cell friendly, ensuring that residue material does not negatively affect the final object’s biological properties
