PVA Shipping Delay

Posted · PVA Shipping Delay

I will start this by saying the PVA included with the Ultimaker 3 Extended is fantastic. It prints relatively easy and dissolves quickly with no effort. With that being said, all that remains for my company is what is left of our initial 350g spool. We had ordered another spool of Ultimaker PVA from Dynamism but it looks like this material is delayed until "Q1 2017" on all the US reseller's websites. We have grown accustomed to the quality that comes with printing supports with PVA. As much as I love Ulitmaker's PVA, what is a good PVA alternative in the mean time. Along with this, can the other brands of PVA be used in the BB print core?

    We have tried printing some with InnoSolve from Innofil3D

    https://www.innofil3d.com/product/innosolve-natural-2-85mm-500gr/

    It is not as good as Ultimaker PVA, it prints pretty well, but when dissolving InnoSolve it clouds the water much faster since there is some other component in it that is not transparent and dissolves slower than the pure PVA, but in a shortage of the best thing... :-)

    And yes, if using PVA of any other brand, the BB core is what you should use.

    It seems like ICE does not deliver to the US. I have ordered esun PVA from amazon. I will reply back with how it goes.

     

    let us know.. I have not had great experiences with esun..

    I have actually cancelled my esun order because a spool of Ultimaker PVA was delivered to us last Friday. If I ever do have to go with a third party PVA, I will return to this thread.

    Just thought I'd jump in about a week later and sat that the 350g spools of UM PVA are now in stock at Dynamism if anyone is interested.

    Hi,

    Have you tried Formfutura Atlas Support PVA ?

    My Ultimaker PVA and Formfutura Atlas PVA does not stick well on top of PLA :

    Do you have tips to enhance the PVA adhesion on top of PLA (Ultimaker 3) ?

    Hear good things about this: http://e3d-online.com/Scaffold-Support-Material

    Did not try it personally (yet)

    @DidierKlein could tell you more?

     

    Yes i tried scaffold, it's easy to print, prints nicely on the UM3.

    It's not as easy to disolve as UM PVA, i have nothing fancy to dissolve i just put it in a bucket of water, for UM PVA after let's say 10 - 12h most of the support is gone, with scaffold it's not.

    I have not experimented a lot with it, but i think that hot water and movement should probably decrease the waiting time.

    But it's a good alternative anyway.
