As a water-soluble support material, Ultimaker PVA empowers engineers and designers to create highly detailed surfaces and complex moving mechanical parts in just one run. Coupled with the right build materials and our proven material profiles in Cura, Ultimaker's PVA opens up a whole new world of opportunities for intricate designs and versatile applications.
PVA allows to effortlessly create complex 3D prints by building water soluble support structures.
PVA spools come in 750g or a smaller 350g - 2.85mm diameter spool. Designed for the Ultimaker 3 BB Print Core specifically. Do not use with AA Print Core.
With PVA and dissolvable supports, your PLA and Nylon prints can now bridge perfectly without marring the finish during print removal. Ultimaker's PVA appears to dissolve much more cleanly and rapidly vs other 3rd party PVA solutions. It is more rigid and prints better so it is a much more reliable support solution. The cost of the PVA is quite high.
