eSun Water Soluble PVA Support Material - 3mm Filament, 0.5kg Reel
With PVA filament, you can print intricate designs with overhangs, internal structures and other difficult geometries that you have not been able to print before. Once printed, water-soluble 3D printer filament will dissolve away after soaking, leaving your model clean and intact with very little clean up.
Works with: LulzBot TAZ Dual Extruder, LulzBot TAZ FlexyDually, and other 3D printers that support dual extrusion and water soluble supports with 3.00mm filament.
Great for interior cavities and intricate parts that make removing support by hand difficult. PVA filament is mildly flexible at room temperature, making support material removal easier. When 3D printed it leaves no residue on the bottom surface of the part.
eSun's Natural PVA filament extrudes well through either a standard Greg's Wade style extruder or a LulzBot Flexystruder, and tends to ooze. It sticks well to painters tape, and less well to PET. We recommend using painters tape and printing with 2-3 layers of raft if you're using PVA as a support material.
When used as support material with a Dual Extruder you do not need to use a specific slicing profile. A slicing profile is available that can be used for printing entire models out of our water-soluble PVA filament.
Parts & Specifications
Filament Diameter: 3 mm (0.12 inches)
Amount of Filament: 500g (1.1 lbs)
Special Tool Head Requirements: Dual Extruder Tool Head recommended
Hot End Temperature Range: 185°C-190°C
Do not use PVA filament at hot end temperatures over 200°C as the material can potentially crystallize/carbonize, leading to extrusion difficulties.
Print Surface: Applying a glue stick (such as Elmer's® brand) directly to the print surface before starting your LulzBot 3D printer is strongly recommended for increased printed object adhesion.
PVA filament ships vacuum sealed and mounted on a reel.
Store your filament in an air tight container. The use of desiccant is encouraged as PVA filament will absorb moisture from the air.
