PVA burnt on BB unit.

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I recently got my Ultimaker 3. And, I am trying to print something with PVA support. Becuase, I have seen some troubles already, I have followed recommended settings such as increasing flow from 100% to 120%.

The printing process itself seems ok except unexpectedly dirty bed (due to strings dropped). However, one big concern of mine is burning material on BB hotend unit. As I mentioned, it prints as normal. However, by the time, the burnt PVA builds up the thicker coating on the outside of the nozzle.

Is there any way to avoid this situation? I am printing with PVA for the first time in my 3d printing experience, and I do not want to lose my BB unit after I only use one time.

    • "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.
