slice problems with PETG and PVA


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · slice problems with PETG and PVA


it is not really possible for me to look for this problem in the forum because I don't even know what to call it.


The following:
It's all about slicing with cura


If I choose PLA and PVA as the material everything is wonderful. (see picture "PLA & PVA")


If I choose PETG and PVA with support from PETG (i.e. I don't use the PVA) everything is wonderful.(see picture "PETG only")


But when I use PETG and PVA with support made of PVA, a strange bowl is created. (see picture "PETG & PVA")
This does not shift with the component, but is always in the same place.
If I switch off the adhesion it is bigger so that I cannot slice it at all. (see picture "PETG & PVA no Adhesion")
Even stranger, as I see it, the bowl is made of PETG and not PVA.


Can I turn this off?

(I think I haven't changed anything in the custom settings for this pictures)
