Issue with PVA support material

Recommended Posts

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

    • 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.
