Getting PVA to stick to build plate with Simplify 3D

Recommended Posts

I downloaded Cura to use with my new UM3, and it is able to print PVA support that sticks to the bed no problem. However, I love S3D because it is much faster than Cura (9 hours vs 3 for one print.

My problem is that when I try to use S3D for PVA, it always tends to lift from the build plate no matter how much glue/hairspray I use. I'm able to get the regular PLA to stick though.

Does anyone know the best settings for S3D so it can successfully print PVA on the UM3?
