Geeetech A10T multi material

Fri Feb 07, 2020 10:33 am

Hi,

Does someone has experience of using Geeetech A10T with multiple different materials?
I want to use PLA and PVA for support. Was playing with Cura and seems that it is kind of works but way from being correct.
Does Simplify3D can handle that? Geeetech A10T has 3 extruders and 1 hotend.

Thanks

I've not done this. And I wouldn't suggest it. The three or two in and one out nozzle printers work best when you keep the materials the same. PVA and PLA need to print at different temperatures, speeds, etc.

You'd be better off trying to use dual materials with a printer that has separate nozzles and heaters.

I agree, it could be a bad situation if the same heating is used.
