Polycarbonate and PVA?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Polycarbonate and PVA?

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.

@kmanstudios Maybe this question can be moved to another forum category for more response?

Yeah...It should have gone to the filament area.....I was originally thinking that it would be a question of the new presets, but that seems to not be the case.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
