Polycarbonate and PVA?

Recommended Posts

I know the new firmware and Cura will have many more materials (PC, TPU, etc) and is being optimized. Temperature is not the only concern when printing as chemical incompatibilities may keep things from sticking. Guessing on that one as I have experimented a lot with materials. Nylon works great as ABS does not. Temp difference is not that great.

But, I am not eager to hop on betas as a clumsy noob.

What are the new compatibilities concerning PVA as a support and other materials other than PLA and Nylon?

PC is something I am looking at due to its high Tg temp (110°C - 113°C).

I'd like to hear answers/comments on this too.

My first print with PC/PVA on UM3 didn't go well. PVA doesn't seem to adhere to PC.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
