FormFutura's BVOH - Butenediol Vinyl Alcohol Co-polymer - 3D printer filament is an advanced water-soluble support material for complex multi-extrusion 3D printing. BVOH bonds to nearly all 'build materials' and it dissolves in water at a faster rate than PVA support materials. Its thermal stability is optimized to eliminate any risk of your hot-end clogging up by thermal degradation.
- Good bonding with nearly all 'build materials'
- Excellent solubility in water
- Resistant to thermal degradation through optimized melt flow properties
- Waste can be disposed of by flushing it (with water) through any regular household drain
- Reliable multi-extrusion 3D printing of complex structures that require a water-soluble support material
- 3D printing geometries with large overhangs or complex hollow structures
- PVA molds

General guidelines for 3D printing with support materials like PVA and BVOH
Printing with support materials, in general, isn’t plug and play and does require a fair amount of 3D printing expertise as there isn’t a generic one-size-fits-all setting for multi extrusion 3D printing with PVA and/or BVOH filaments. The optimal 3D printing settings for support PVA and BVOH filaments can even vary between the same models of 3D printers.
One of the most common challenges is to establish a good bond between the PVA and/or BVOH support material and the primary build material. Below parameters are of utmost importance to establish good bonding between the 3D printing materials.
