Ultimaker PVA

PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) is a water soluble support material for multi-extrusion 3D printing. With a good thermal stability, Ultimaker PVA is ideal for printing complex models that require supports for large overhangs, deep internal cavities, and intricate geometries. Designed for a seamless 3D printing experience, our PVA provides good adhesion to both PLA and Nylon. Available in 350g and 750g spools.

Reasons to choose Ultimaker PVA

  • Good thermal stability resulting in better degradation resistance compared to other PVA filaments
  • Less moisture sensitive than other PVA filaments
  • Great adhesion to both PLA and Nylon
  • Safe dissolution in tap water (no harmful chemicals required
  • Biodegradable with no hazardous by-products
  • PVA allows to effortlessly create complex 3D prints by building water soluble support structures



Step 1


Put your 3D print in cold or warm water depending on the build material.

Step 2


After PVA supports are dissolved, rinse the 3D print to remove any excess PVA solution.

Step 3


Let the 3D print dry and apply additional post processing to the build material if necessary.

Example 3D prints using PVA

Get smoother surface details and complex geometries

PVA reduces the chance of scraping and cutting marks on detailed surfaces such as characters, faces, and other intricate details.
