Dream it. Print it. Go from ideation to execution faster with the suite of AquaSys 3D printing supports. AquaSys pushes boundaries with advanced adhesion characteristics, broad material compatibility, and excellent aqueous dissolution. And by thriving at elevated chamber temperatures, it reduces warpage and improves z-axis adhesion.

Go hotter. Go faster. Go where others can't.

We developed AquaSys filaments to address key product-performance gaps in the market. All AquaSys materials are water-soluble filaments that enable safe, easy, accelerated disposal. AquaSys 120 empowers you to work with a wide array of build materials, including Nylon, PC, and PP, with the same support filament. And AquaSys 180 offers new opportunities for engineering thermoplastics — including PEEK and PEKK.
