Using PVA and PLA as support in diffrent areas


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Using PVA and PLA as support in diffrent areas



is it possible to define areas where only PVA is used as support material and areas where PLA and PVA is used as support materials (PVA only as support interface extruder)?

I have a quit complicated model and for the lower part of the model the option to use PLA as support and PVA as support interface extruder is realy nice. But for the upper part of the model i just want to use the PVA Extruder to generate the complete support. 
I tried to place a cube at the upper part and used the "Mesh-Typ: Modify Settings for overlaps" tool but with no success. There are some options to change the infill density and also some support settings, but unfortually no option to configure the support Extruder.

Please help! 😉 and see image for futher informations.

Greetings Robin

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
