PVA filament, made by Mitsubishi Chemicals Performance Polymers, is cold water soluble, supporting material for dual extruder 3D printing. The modification on the raw material results in a filament that is much more thermally stable than a regular PVA. It also bonds well to PLA, ABS and PET-G, which enlarges the application field significantly. This polyvinyl alcohol-based filament is non toxic and biodegradable once dissolved in water. Easy printing, much less failures and easy removability makes this the supporting material you should try.
Ø Diameter = 1.75 mm
There is a new version of BEESOFT with new profiles optimized for this filament.
If you own a BEETHEFIRST, BEETHEFIRST+ or BEEINSCHOOL 3D printer, download the NEW BEESOFT version here
If you own a B2X300, here are the Cura Profiles for this filament.
Improved formula with enhanced stability in printing
Excellent water solubility
Thermally much more stable than a regular PVA
Good bonding to PLA, PET-G, TPU-FLEX and PLA N
Biodegradable when dissolved in water
Supporting material for dual extruder 3D printing, cold water soluble.
Recommended temperature for heated bed is ± 35-60˚C. Do not exceed a printing temperature of 225˚C, because then PVA crystallizes quickly and it will no longer flow and/or dissolve in water.
The speed at which the product dissolves in water is dependent on the volume of the printed object and the temperature of the water. PVA dissolves in cold water. Higher water temperature (up to 70˚C is no problem) will accelerate the dissolution.
PVA can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
Storage: Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
