Issues with PVA

Recommended Posts

Posted · Issues with PVA

I have recently started using the Ultimaker 3 and the PVA filament and I'm having issues with its water solubility. I have printed twice using it and put one in cold water and one in warm water but neither seem to be full dissolving. The most part of the support either dissolves or gets tacky enough to peel off but the last bits attached to the PLA just don't want to come off. Is there a trick to this? :)

I normally give it a quick dunk in warm water the peel off the bulk and then let it soak overnight.

Moving water helps a lot and using one of these is meant to speed things up a lot as it warms the water and keeps it moving.
