Disolvable Supports on the UM2


Recommended Posts

Posted · Disolvable Supports on the UM2

I am wanting to print with Dissolvable material has anyone any suggestions which is the best I have found the likes of Esun, Formfutura, and Verbatim, which they say is BVOH which is expensive, I don't mind the cost (within reason) but just don't want the Nozzle jams??? and is it ok to leave in the printer ??? I thought I read that it was bad practise and asking for problems...

Any Advise welcome and appreciated???//

    I'd think the breakaway stuff sounds easier to manage in terms of not drying out or blocking nozzles, but after looking at a few tut on how to slice you model into smaller pieces, im just doing that for ease of printing and speed, as they only take about an hour to glue and fill, whereas dual nozzle printing seems to take many hours more and still needs cleanup anyway!

    both have downsides though.

    Good evening,

    I had a very honorable result a few weeks ago with "scaffold". You can see below the detail of may last post:

    I just understood this "scaffold". When we do a simple manual extrusion test (disassembly of bowden with insertion and removal of the wire by hand) we understand that it retires very difficult and it is certainly this effort that gnawed the wire when of the retraction by extruding it. I also raised the temperature to 230 ° C to get a good result.

    Here is the piece in cura 2.7.

    Here are the settings for SCAFFOLD and Poly_Plus_PLA.
