PVA constantly oozing during print

Recommended Posts

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 ?

 

Thanks!

Try cutting back on the temp a slight bit to see if that helps.

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.
