Getting PVA to stick to build plate with Simplify 3D

Recommended Posts

Posted · Getting PVA to stick to build plate with Simplify 3D

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?

Hi, and sorry for the late answer. I don't think it is realistic to expect such a dramatic speed increase in S3D over Cura. Have you compared their print settings with the print profile you selected in Cura?

As for PVA - I don't have experience with S3D and PVA - sorry.
