This ensures complete removal of the PVA material, and allows for novel uses – e.g. printing objects inside of other objects, or partially attached but freely moving from one another.

Example of PVA Supports Being Dissolved by Zeepro

BuMat Elite PVA Filament is a water soluble (easily dissolved) material, perfect for use as a support structure. The importance of this relates to its implementation as a print support material for dual nozzle / dual extrusion printers. For objects that might otherwise be considered “impossible” to print as either a single piece, or to print at all – BuMat Elite PVA can function as the support material that makes printing these objects possible. In cases where an object has overhanging structures, complex & intricate horizontal extrusions, or similarly challenging details – PVA filament can be used to fill in the empty space, providing vertical support to components of a print that would otherwise need to be “floating” in midair.

Once the print is complete, the BuMat Elite PVA filament can be separated from the primary material (ABS, etc), removing the support material & leaving behind only the desired, completed object. The PVA support filament can be easily dissolved in a bath of warm water, cleaning your primary object without damaging it. This ensures complete removal of the PVA material, and allows for novel uses – e.g. printing objects inside of other objects, or partially attached but freely moving from one another. Think in terms of a gear mechanism with multiple moving parts that interact with one another, or sealed ball bearings – created in a single print. This greatly increases the range of what’s possible with your 3D printer, opening up the doors to new innovation and functionality.

PVA Filament is an alternative to HIPS Filament, another popular material used as support material. Whereas HIPS requires an orange based chemical solvent known as Limonene to dissolve, PVA Filament is easily dissolved in warm water. However, PVA can be more tricky to print with – high temperatures must be avoided, to ensure that the material doesn’t break down.

The natural colored filament has a clean white finish when printed. BuMat Elite PVA is manufactured at specifications intended for professionals and serious hobbyists who require precision and reliability. Whatever the scale of your project, a filament failure can cost you time and money. The impressive performance of BuMat Elite allows you to print with confidence, removing filament concerns from the equation. Larger and more complex projects print with ease, so you can focus on innovating – not troubleshooting faulty filament.

BuMat Elite PVA filament comes neatly coiled on a spool, free of tangles and ready to use. All BuMat filament is tested on FlashForge 3D printers to ensure that the specified quality standards are met, and 1.75mm ABS filament is universally compatible with all 3D printer nozzles that accept 1.75mm filament. Every spool is delivered in an airtight vacuum package, ensuring the freshness of the filament upon arrival.

All BuMat filament is made from pure, non-recycled thermoplastics. Strict quality controls eliminate air bubbling, and ensure a hassle free 3D Printing experience. Filament issues can be frustrating, and they take away from time that’s better spent working on your next innovation. With BuMat filament, extruder jams and clogs become a thing of the past – spend less time repairing your printer, and more time creating great prints!
