Hello, My name's Javier and I have a home-made Prusa I3 clone with dual extrusion and Marlin 1.1.8 I used to print using ABS but I found that a nightmare due to warp and some other issues so I moved to PETG (I never used PLA as I print mechanical parts and I read PLA is not good for that).
I'm having some trouble printing with PVA on my ffcp. The PVA is not sticking to itself. I'm seeing if I can change the speed of the print. How do I change it so that it prints at regular speed for the object and then 60 mm/min for the support structure?
Hi All, So one of our key costs as a hub is of course filament and we've longed to try and find a way to reduce this cost - like other smaller hubs we found that it isn't really viable to buy in bulk from the manufacturer in the quatities they want to sell and the cost of filament from 3rd parties and suppliers really hurts our profit margin - So...
Hey I'm thinking of getting some PVA to use as support material on my FlashForge Creator Pro. Has anyone ran PVA on a FFCP before? Any tips or pointers I should know before I go buy some and just end up getting frustrated? Thanks ahead of time for all the help!
I'm having trouble running pva on my dreamer. When l feed it into either of the heads the drive just keeps clicking and nothing much comes out of the excluders. I have try running from temperature from 190 To 240, at 240 the pva did start to come out of the excluder, but the clicking did as well. Anyone have any ideas? Can you get faulty PVA.
Let's get to the point, I recently received and order of PVA filament from BuMat and was using with PLA to print something. Anyhow, my printer heats up the PVA filament to 240 degrees Celcius. Is that an appropriate temperature for PVA??
Anyone having extruded PVA to create filament for printing? At which temp did you extrude? I have problems with the filament diameter(too thick, even at 180 C and also varies widely with time and extruder loading)...
Any ideas? Are there any alternative materials to PVA (dissolvable with a bio-friendly solvent) or PLA (bio-friendly plastic)? Oli
