Getting PVA to stick to build plate with Simplify 3D

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.

      • 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
