PC-max and PVA

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience with printing the model in PC-Max and suport-material in PVA?

I'm using the Ultimaker 3 Extended...

The PVA and PC-Max won't stick together, can somebody help me? (Must be printed in PC or PC-max)

Kind regards,

Sjors

I use pc-max with UM pva, and use the Simplify 3D pla + pva fine profile.

Only change the dense layer to 2, 90 % dense infill and 0 upper and lower seperation layers, also 0 horizontal offset.

Works nicely.

My printbed is treated with 3Dlac, and to get good adhesive on top of the pc-max, i make the support as big as i can, or have to.

If i use the PolySupport, i threat it like normal support, no dense layer and a little horizontal offset.

    • "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.
