Hi!

I am trying to print with PLA as main material and HIPS as support material. I know that they have a big difference between temperatures and we shouldn't mix them.

But the problem is that between the pice and the support exists a distance si the piece is not hold. Now if we change the material (the HIPS) is happening the same...

Anyone have any idea of what could be the solution? - for making the support close to the pice

Thank you very much!!

    Hi,

    The material combination is PLA as main material and PVA as support material. For ABS the combination is using HIPS as support material.

    I'm not an expert, but PLA sticks to PVA much better than HIPS, and that may be one of the reasons why it isn't properly working.

    Also, in Cura 2.X there are a lot of parameters in the "Support material" section. One of them allows you to set the distance between the support material and the model. I usually set a 0.1mm distance, but it all depends on the model and the filament type.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
