Hi, Ben,

 

The PVA material is only compatible with the BB core. It was designed in a way to improve the result when using this material. There should have been one included with your machine.

Just to put a fine point on this: That would be true for any PVA.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
