Gizmo Dorks 3mm PVA Filament 0.5kg for 3D Printers, Natural

Gizmo Dorks
We provide the highest quality 3D printing materials such as ABS, PLA, HIPS, PVA, and more. Our filaments are run with tight tolerances. There are no air bubbles or oily residues. Every filament comes loaded on a durable, hard plastic spool, not a cheap, flimsy cardboard spool.

PVA is a water-soluble synthetic polymer. PVA dissolves quickly in water. It is the perfect filament to use as support material for it’s dissolvable properties. Generally, PVA is used in conjunction with PLA not ABS because it adheres well to PLA. The extrusion temperature difference can also be problematic with ABS. Importantly, PVA should not be allowed to sit at temperatures higher than 200 C for an extended period of time, known as pyrolysis. It will form jams which are extremely difficult to remove. Unlike PLA and ABS, you cannot remove the jam by increasing the temperature. Clearing the jam in the nozzle will often require it to be re-drilled or replaced altogether, so be careful!

Compatible with RepRap, Makerbot, UP!, Lulzbot, Afinia, Solidoodle, MakerGear, Printrbot LC, and more!

Net weight: 0.5kg
Diameter: 1.75mm or 3mm
Diameter tolerance: +/- 0.05mm

FAQ?
Is the spindle hole large enough to fit my Makerbot printer?
Yes! Our spindle holes are large enough to fit the Makerbot printers. You don’t have to worry about fabricating a spindle extension any longer. *NOTE, these spools fit inside of the new Makerbot 5th generation printer drawers!

What are some printing tips?
Please use Kapton tape or 3M blue tape. Please use in well ventilated areas.

What are the printing temperatures for PVA?
Printing temperature range is ~170 C – 190 C. Please be sure to not let PVA sit at temperatures higher than 200 C for a period of time! This is very important to prevent pyrolysis which will jam and clog the nozzle!

  1. Decently priced, high quality filament. Make sure you use blue painters tape (https://www.amazon.com/3M-Scotch-Blue-Safe-Release-Multi-Surfaces-Painters/dp/B0064N00DE) and keep the filament in a sealed container with desiccant when not in use, but otherwise I have no issues using this filament. It lasts a few days out of the box on the machine before it starts sizzling when it extrudes.I’m using this to print on a Lulzbot Taz 6 with PLA to provide supports for protein crystal…

  2. I bought about a week ago after trying a sample from eSUN. eSUN’s filament is 5% cheaper but it was not available at the time of my purchase. Gizmo Dorks shipped the product the same morning and it arrived very quickly. It was well packed, dry, and ready to use. It is a high quality filament, smooth, no perceptible variations in diameter, easy to insert. The only reason I…
