I only wish, and frankly expected, that the PVA would dissolve a bit quicker but we have come to except that we toss it in the water for several hours;

 

What is your process of dissolving PVA? If you use warm water (not hot, not cold) and if there is a current that helps. Depending on the size of your container, if the water is saturated with PVA it significantly slows down the process too, so refreshing the water may also help.

    And don't forget that all the material you can remove before you put it into water does not have to be dissolved. Sometimes it also helps for this to put the part into water for 10 minutes or so and then remove the resulting goo before you put it back into fresh water.

    Hi SandervG

     

    I use a 3 gallon container with warm warm; no circulation and we refresh it after each print.

     

    Thank you
