Issue with PVA support material

Posted · Issue with PVA support material

Hi everybody, I recently bought an UM3, as soon as it arrived I loaded the PLA(AA) and PVA(BB) spools included in the box then manually levelled the bed and started printing the famous robot from the UM android app with Normal settings.

What I immediately noticed was that the printer started to mess with PVA, indeed the whole bed surface was covered with PVA blobs and strings, moreover there was no trace of the prime tower.

What's wrong with it? Does the PVA maybe not sticking to the bed/PLA?

Thanks
