Dissolvable filament for DIY 3D printers

Dissolvable filament for DIY 3D printers

Postby Awesomeness » Tue May 27, 2014 10:34 pm

I missed this when it was announced several months ago, but one of the high-end MakerBots can now use a dissolvable filament. This is great news for technical users of 3D printers (people wanting to print serious and complex 3D parts, not novelty parts specifically designed to avoid the downfals of DIY 3D printers that have no dissolvable support material).

The filament dissolves in something called limonene, which as far as I can tell may be the basic ingredient in GooGone, but I'm not sure.

If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
