Has anyone tried to use a ceramic filament with PVA?

I understand you have to use different temperatures for the two filaments.

Is it possible to have this configuration with the Ultimaker 3?

I haven't tried using layceramic. But you can set different temps and other print settings for both materials to get great results for both. This is something that you would need to experiment with.

I would just check to make sure that the filament is not abrasive before using it in a standard UM core or it will not last Long.

You could use a hard core from 3D solex and use an everlast nozzle if you find it is abrasive.

Also PVA may not stick to layceramic. So requesting a sample might be a good idea just to check.
