PVA Generic or Natural

Recommended Posts

That sounds silly.  It's probably fine.

 

Maybe you should be more specific - where are you chainging this - in Cura? In the drop down?  Does it really say "natural" (I haven't seen that before)?  What brand of PVA are you planning to print?  Are you planning to run the PVA through a BB core (or AA or 3rd party?)

I run into this at every print with Cura Connect. For some reason, they have the thing hanging on every tiny difference. Generic, color, other things including if it is not the same Ultimaker color.

 

Type (Such as PVA, PLA TPU, etc) I can understand, but not variation of type.

 

As long as you know you have the right material type in each core, you are ok. As PVA in BB core and all others in AA core AND they match the type you have chosen to slice. Do not try to print something like a PLA is you sliced with the material chosen as something else like PC. That is what they are trying to warn you about.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
