Scaffold snap is a specialist support material that's designed to easily break away from the part and leave a good surface finish behind. Unlike Scaffold, Scaffold Snap is not soluble in water.

Scaffold Snap is a Styrene-based support filament for use with ASA and ABS-based filaments.
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.
- Heat Deflection Temperature: 84°C

- Bed Adhesion: Glue stick on glass, Dimafix adhesive.
Compatibility of Scaffold Snap With Other Plastics
|Edge||Yes||Somewhat stickier than MatX or ABS but still viable|
|PET/Copolyesters||Yes||Usable, but not ideal.|
- Soluble in limonene (proper precautions should be taken)
