    Dissolvable PVA materials and suppliers - successes and failures

    Has anyone used PVA support materials (dissolvable)?

    There seems to be a wide temperature range of materials out there. Some rated as low as 160*C minimum and some as high as 210*C minimum.

    If you've had success or failure using any of these in the Cube 3, please post the source/manufacturer and if it was successful or a failure.

    TYIA

    I ordered the New-other Infinity Rinse cart that showed up on eBay.
    Much safer bet for now. This will be my second INF cart.

    Should have a chip for sale soon if people want to start bidding for it now

    Opened in August '17 and never used... no friction dots.
    Otherwise a full virgin cartridge.
    Seller explained the printer didn't work and was returned.

    ...IT'S HEEEEEEeeeeeeerrrrrrreeeeee!

    Something's -very- different about this recently manufactured Infinity Rinse cartridge...

    It has a sticker with the filament date on the spool.
    They went overboard to seal this cartridge including molded membranes and lots of clear tape and tape dots.
    It has 4 desiccants inside the cartridge.
    The date code suggest this was assembled Feb 22, 2017... filament date is Nov'16.

    Anyone else seen this level of effort on normal PLA or ABS carts?

    I am wondering if this is INF Rinse specific.
    Maybe they all melted together from moisture

    I'll video it for YouTube this weekend. Should get a few hits.

    It will really make it less attractive to try and fix a cartridge, that's for sure.

    Meaning you need to crack the whole thing to gain access?

    Yep, it is sealed to the bone! Even the finger holes!
