Printing Problems with PVA


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing Problems with PVA

Hello, I am just starting printing something with PVA, but always with failure. According to this old thread https://ultimaker.com/en/community/3458-printing-with-pva, I set almost the same parameters. But still doesn't work.

There are mainly two issues that bother me.

1. it seems that PVA is difficult to stick on the plate, even if with glue (the printer I use is ultimaker 2, with glass plate). I set the temperature from 60 to 90 degree celcius, but none of them could let PVA stick on the plate. The print temperature was set as suggested in the previous thread, at 206 degree celcius, and other settings were also followed as the thread mentioned. Is there something wrong that can explain why my PVA not sticking on the plate?

2. the second issue was that the nozzle stop extruding PVA after printing for a while, this really confused me, has anyone an idea about that?

Thank you guys in advance!

Ye

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
