Using PVA only between support and object?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Using PVA only between support and object?

One of the 3d printing groups I am on posted this link.  Essentially it only uses PVA in the layer or two between the supports, with the majority of the supports in the regular material. Is it possible to do this with Cura?

The $149 price tag for Simplify3D would soon pay for itself in PVA savings. I love Cura and my Ultimaker and can't think of any other way to print, but I am considering switching to Simplify3D given this option (amongst others - variable infill for example, easier variable layer height, very exciting)

You can do that on Cura. Unhide the options and assign rooftop to pva. Ofc you will need better than average pva for it to print right on top of pla (and the pva must be as dry as the desert)
