What is SR-30?
SR-30 is a proprietary soluble support material developed by Stratasys® and MakerBot that is optimized to work
extremely well with ABS due to its unique adhesion properties. It is compatible with the MakerBot
METHOD X 3D Printer using the Support 2XA extruder. Unlike PVA which is simply water soluble,
SR-30 requires additional equipment for dissolution.
What equipment do I need?
● Circulation Tank that provides heat and circulation
● Ecoworks™ cleaning agent tablets
● Other equipment
○ Safety Gloves
○ Splash Resistant Safety Goggles
○ Stainless Steel Tongs
○ Stainless Steel Strainer
Recommended Circulation Tanks:
● CleanStation DT3
Circulation Tanks heat and circulate a solution water and wash agent around an
immersed 3D print to efficiently dissolve support material (in this case SR-30) from the
part. Without the aid of a heated circulation tank (or similar equipment) the support
material is extremely difficult to dissolve, not to mention significantly more time
