Is there anything wrong with this printer? PVA not working

Recommended Posts

Posted · Is there anything wrong with this printer? PVA not working

Hello everyone! My name is Nick, and I'm new to 3D printing. I was super excited when I got this Ultimate S5 couple days ago. However, as I was printing, I started to discover that there is a problem with the PVA print. Every time, it didn't come out correctly from the feeder as the image shows. It either clogged or suddenly fed out a large pile of PVA during printing, which was very frustrating. The 3D printer is covered and placed in a room with closed windows, so I don't think that internal temperature is a problem. What could the problem be? Moisturized material? Broken feeder? Bad Cura set-up? The printer is broken? I need to solve this issue asap so I can replace the machine if the machine itself is broken. Sorry for taking your time. I truly appreciate your help!

Had the same problem on my UM3, got clogged during several trials mid-print.

Was using non UM material, today I started a new print with UM PVA to see if it helps.

I was using the same PVA material that comes with the package. Maybe it's a little wet, I'll dry it and see how it goes.
