Sorry.  Can you be more specific.  what is the solution's product name?  I am talking about the solution required to dissolve the PVA supports.  Is this the most eco-friendly option for dissolving supports?

    Sounds great.  I did not realize there was support material that dissolved in 100% water - awesome.  What support material is required for PC and please provide a good description of the solvent required to dissolve that support material (or a link to its MSDS).  Thanks.

    Hi,

     

    Not sure about PC but another support material that is used sometimes is HIPS. The material used to dissolve this is Limonene. This is far less friendly to use than water. Unfortunately, we don't stock this material and therefore we also don't have an MSDS for it.

    Sounds like PC is not commonly printed on an Ultimaker machine?  This is not entirely a game-stopper for me but is something I need to consider.  Thanks for your help.

    @Bruce845 PC or Polycarbonate can be printed on the Ultimaker but is not intended as a dissolvable support material.  It is meant to be used to create parts.

     

    PVA is a dissolvable support material.

    HIPS is a dissolvable support material

    break away" is meant as a non-dissolvable support material.

    With PC, this would be my choice. While I have printed PC with PVA, the temperature difference made it burn a bit and leave black spots on the print.

    Will Ultimaker machines run Infinity Rinse-Away supports?

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
