Ultimaker PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) is a 3D printing material commonly used to create water-soluble support structures to achieve complex geometries.  Ultimaker PVA 3D Printing Filament offers reliable adhesion with Ultimaker and non-Ultimaker PLA, Tough PLA, and Nylon. Its non-toxic formula dissolves in regular tap water, so it can be disposed of safely. Unlock the ability to create concept models and finished 3D prints with complex geometries, internal cavities, ball bearings, ball and socket joints, or caged gear mechanisms. Ultimaker PVA 3D Printing Filament was specifically developed for dual-extrusion prints, which means that it is supported on both the Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S3, and Ultimaker 3 3D Printers. On these printers, you should print Ultimaker PVA with a BB print core.

Multi-component applications such as ball bearings, ball and socket joints, and caged gear mechanisms can be 3D printed as a complete assembly in a single manufacturing run with Ultimaker PVA 3D printing filament and a dual-extrusion 3D printer like the Ultimaker S5.
