PVA doesn't stick!

Recommended Posts

This is normal. PLA will stick on top of PVA. But PVA only sticks to PVA. It sounds strange but it's true.

The fix is to use horizontal expansion - it's a feature of cura - it's not working for you for some reason. Try increasing support horizontal expansion to maybe 10mm to see if that makes it so the pva is connected all the way down.

By the way this print doesn't appear to need any support so you could just disable support.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
