PVA Supports is a Pain!

Mon Mar 14, 2016 6:15 pm

Hello all,

I have been printing with PETg for months with no problems however I decided to invest in a creatbot dx dual extruder mainly to print PVA supports, having huge problems. I can get the first layer to stick but then subsequent layers just curl up and i get blobs, im sure there is something I have done wrong which is easy to fix in the slicer settings, can somebody advise? is it the retraction? Im printing the PVA at 200 c with the HB at 10 c, no skirts, rafts or ooze shields on. here are the settings:
Im thinking of moving over to HIPS for my supports however I dont want to give up on PVA quite yet. Any advice would be appreciated
