AquaSolve PVA - 1.75mm 50g Sample | Formfutura
Formfutura AquaSolve PVA - 1.75mm, 50g Sample
AquaSolve PVA is a wonderful support material for dual extrusion printers, allowing you to get create beautiful prints with intricate spaces where supports would be difficult to remove.
- Cold water soluble
- Bonds very well to filament that print within a similar temperature range: PLA, PETG, etc.
- Biodegradable and non-toxic when dissolved in water
- Natural color
AquaSolve Print Settings
These settings are recommended by Formfutura and are meant as a starting point to help find your optimal print settings. They should work for most 3D printers; however, you may need to experiment outside these ranges. If you find settings that work better with your printer, feel free to let us know and we will be happy to post them.

Note from Formfutura:
Do not exceed a printing temperature of 225˚C, because then PVA will crystallize quickly and it will no longer flow and/or dissolve in water. Printing with PVA materials does require a certain level of 3D printing expertise as PVA cannot stay too long in the hot secondary/support nozzle and needs to flow. It needs expert tweaking to find the optimal “waiting temperature” so that the material does not deteriorate/crystalize in the hot secondary/support nozzle when not being printed.
