Printing a Mold in PVA

Recommended Posts

I would like to use Cura's mold feature to print an object in PVA. How do I approach this? I've tried selecting the object and setting it to "Print Selected Model With: Extruder 2: PVA BB 0.4" and then clicking "Mold" in Special Modes. But when I hit "Prepare," I get the original object sliced as usual, not the negative. If I have the model set to "Print Selected Model With: Extruder 1: PLA AA 0.4" the mold mode works correctly, no problem.

Weird. I just pulled the Ultimaker robot in to screenshot the process, and it worked! So I tried it with the model I was using again, and it also worked! I don't know if I had something clicked wrong or if it was the software equivalent of turning it off and on again.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
