<< Subj: water soluble build material

From: email@example.com (Tien-min Gabriel Chu)
Is there any water soluable build material available on the market? If so,
what type of machine uses it? I seem to remember Z-corp is using some type
of starch based material. Could someone share some information on this?

Dear Mr. Chu:
Stratasys said at Autofact that they will be introducing a water-solubilizable
ABS for use as support material with the FDM process. This material doesn't
dissolve in water, but they say it will do so in a mild alkali. They
mentioned as an example solvent Windex window cleaner.
Hope this is a help.
