Dual Extruder with PVA support

Does anyone have good software that has dual extruder with pva support. I'm tired of trying to figure out PVA as support structure using Slic3r. I don't care what software it is, it needs to be able to plug and play. Thanks for everyones input.

Re: PVA/ABS Dual Extrusion

After doing some reading, PVA should not be extruded above 200C as it can solidify and be a huge pain to remove. 195C should be the top end of the heat range. Also suggest, not to leave PVA inside a hotend for extended period of time (waiting to be used), this can also cause it to solidify. It absor...

Re: TAZ Slic3r profiles

Can lulzbot supply (or anyone else) a profile for dual extruder, with a GOOD profile for PVA support material?

Re: PVA/ABS Dual Extrusion

I'm having a difficult time with PVA also. It doesn't extrude reliably, oozes horribly and doesn't stick to painters tape very well (i'm also using PLA w/ PVA support). On a side note, I hate PLA, much rather use ABS, but customer wants what customer wants :P. I'm extruding the PVA at 205, which see...

Re: Hexagon Hotend

I currently use the Hexagon Hotend. I'm using it to be able to print PolyCarbonate filament. Most important thing to note with this hotend is the mandatory cooling fan. Especially for PLA, heat creep is a huge problem without a cooling fan (for the hotend, not the plastic). As long as the cooling is...

Re: The best path to dual extrusion

Don't forget the extruder cable (for the new hotend, motor, and fan) which Lulzbot doesn't supply (even though they make them).

Re: Bed Leveling Woes

to get more information, I would take measurements from the table it sits on to the top of the print table. This will give you a little more info on the cause of the problem. Measure from tabletop to bottom of X-axis too.

Dual Hexagon Setup

I'm putting together a Dual Hexagon hotend. For a single, I know the hotend assembly is different to accommodate the shorter hotend. Will the current Dual Hotend assembly work with Hexagons? Are there already a Dual Hexagon files available?

Re: TAZ 4 print quality advice?

Lowering the print layer height will assist with improving quality of overhangs, which that piece has a lot of. If they're using Lulzbot Slic3r settings, they're not getting as fine detail as possible. Layer height can go down to .06. Also, make sure the fan is on. When I started, I made the mistake...
