Styrene-based support filament for use with ASA and ABS-based filaments.

General Guidelines Scaffold Snap is easier to print than Scaffold. It cannot be dissolved in tap water, but there is no risk of cross-linking or heat-related degradation in the nozzle. We suggest a low infill percentage (10%-15%) combined with a zig-zag printing pattern. An interface layer should be included of at least 1mm, with infill 50%-60%. A grid pattern works well but a 'concentric' pattern offers some of the nicest surface finishing. For optimum breakaway, privilege X/Y distance over Z, at a distance approximately equal to the layer height.

Additional Notes

Soluble in limonene (proper precautions should be taken); also compatible with PETG-based filaments such as spoolWorks Edge.
Material Pairings
Material Breakaway Notes
MatX Yes Optimised pairing
ASA Yes Good pairing
ABS Yes Good pairing
Edge Yes Somewhat stickier than MatX or ABS but still viable
TPU Flexibles No
PET/Copolyesters Yes Usable, but not ideal.
