Posted · PVA Support section

Hi !

 

I use an Ultimaker S5 and I have recently started having problems with preparing a part that requires PVA support. As you can see in the picture below, the support structure isn't convering the entire section of the part, it leaves a gap between the structure.

I have been browsing around for other options in cura's support configuration but I can't seem to find anything that will fix this. I generally use Cura's default profiles for materials. Currently using Ultimaker CPE+ and Ultimaker PVA. 

 

- I am using Cura 4.4.0 BETA at the moment and I have a feeling this only started happening since. 

 

- So far, changing support placement from Everywhere to Touching build plate doesn't change anything.

 

- I tried changing from PVA to Breakaway and the support covers the entire section, so this only happens with PVA.

 

- Also tried with a diferente part and the same problem happens.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
