PVA constantly oozing during print

Posted · PVA constantly oozing during print

Hello all!

I don't have a picture at the moment but I am having an issue with PVA.

I JUST got the UM3 this week and made a test part with some various overhangs to test out the dual extrusion since I have never had it before. I used PVA as the support material so I could dissolve it of course, but during the beginning of the print, the PVA was oozing pretty consistently. About 1/10 of the way into the print it stopped oozing as much but never totally stopped for the rest of the print. Not a big deal if I am going to dissolve it right away I know but I was curious if there is a full proof way to stop this from happening at all. 

I saw a few threads on the subject but the content was still a bit off from the problem I am having. 


Any and all help is definitely appreciated ?

    Im thinking that might help. The troubling part is, the settings are setup to be completely stock for both the machine and Cura so I assumed everything should be fine. 

    I will try that tomorrow when I get back to work and see if it helps. ?

    I have had to play with things a bit and not as much as others, on my UM3E machines and they are stock machines. And, PVA is such a goofy material to work with anyway. Environment really plays a big part of that experience.


    And, to make sure, it is the BB core in the Material 2 slot for use with the PVA.
