DimensionSST768

       

The Dimension SST (Soluble Support Technology) incorporates the same technology as the original Dimension BST (Breakaway Support Technology) and therefore produces the same high-quality ABS and ABS plus models. The difference is that Dimension SST features an automated support removal process.

The designer simply removes the model from the system and places the model into an SST Station. An SST Station is an agitation system that utilizes hot water and a soap bath to automatically wash away the support structures. Essentially, the Dimension SST allows for "hands-free" printing.

The Dimension SST768 is network compatible and produces durable working models from ABS and ABS plus with the click of a button. Once the model is printed, simply remove the model from the printer, peel away the support and begin using the functional model.
