techniprintAs the days of the calendar peel off and fly away–each one more rapidly than the others it would seem–we are inundated, the world as a whole, with truly amazing innovations due to the luxury afforded us these days by technology like 3D printing. From progress in the medical field that has already changed and saved lives, to allowing for 3D printed components to be made for travel into space, as well as future plans for possible 3D printed interstellar colonization, we see some pretty stunning stuff.

Techni-Print-time-compOne thing we don’t hear much about though, however, are solubles and solutions. While the finished 3D model is very exciting and gives lots to write home to mom about–often the exercises involved in getting there do not. No one is all that fond of having to use supports or perform post-processing operations either, but as most of us are well aware, turning out a good product usually requires some blood, sweat, and tears as key magical ingredients.

Tackling the use of supports in 3D printing expands the potential for products far too much to be ignored–which means that an added quotient to your 3D printing list of supplies may also be some of the newer support cleaners.

Just released by Technic is a new product meant to make your life easier, as well as the overall 3D printing process. Techni Print can be used with any 3D printer, according to the Rhode Island headquartered company that boasts seven decades in the business of chemicals, powder, finishing equipment and more. Meant to help remove support materials that are soluble, the solution arrives in a 40x concentrate liquid, and according to Technic, this new support cleaner has the ability not only to outperform every other brand, but to cut processing times up to a whopping 400 percent.

UntitledYou can also look forward to dealing with the waste issue more expediently with Techni Print, which ‘reclaims’ virtually all the support materials from within the solution. Also recommended with this product is Techni Print Eco-Reclaim Agent.

“With the use of a powdered additive, Techni Print Eco-Reclaim Agent, a fully saturated Techni Print cleaner can be separated into a solid mass of support waste material and a clarified liquid with a pH of less than nine,” states the Technic team. “This easy to implement treatment step ensures significantly less waste by volume in an easy to dispose of solid and a clear liquid solution that meets regulatory statutes for disposal down the drain.”

While 3D printing enthusiasts will no doubt find the accelerated speed involved highly attractive, Techni Print also offers a unique system that is built it to indicate the solution’s viability and readiness for continued use, with the color changing from blue to white and letting users know when to change the product. For many who have been operating on sheer guessing in this area, they should now be able to find more efficiency and savings all around, and can order online as well.
