Ultimaker S5 PVA filiment feeding issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 PVA filiment feeding issues

I'm having issues where the printer will stop printing, thinking is out of filament.

This happens only on the PVA filament I have printing in the second core.

Usually this is an issue with the tension setting at the feeder but I'm tighten it, losing it but i still does not feed the way it should.

You know how the filament gets the indentation in it from the feeder trying to feed filament that is not moving?

I take the filament off, cut about two inches off so the feeder moves past the indentation and then it's fine for another 10 minutes.

Then it does it again.


Any ideas?
