Printing PVA not possible

Posted · Printing PVA not possible

Hey, 

i printed with PVA about 8 months ago and did not have any reals issues with it.

Yesterday i took the PVA out of a ziploc bag with dehumidifier bags and installed it into the Ultimaker 3.

As suggested i installed the BB0.4 print core. But for some reason the printer was not able to extrude the material.

Then i completed a hot pull and a cold pull cleaning step. Manually i could extrude the cleaning filament and i also tried the PVA succesfully.

However the printer is not able to extrude the material. I even left it overnight on the printing bed at a temperatur of 50°C.

Are there any people who have expierenced the same issue?

        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.
