Dissolvable supports not sticking to transition tower

I am trying to print using PVA as a dissolvable support.

However when the transition tower is printing the PVA does not stick to anything. Has anyone found good settings to ensure PVA and PLA stick well in the transition tower?

Everything seems to print fine on the part but i can only get 5 or 6 layers in before the PVA or the PLA stop sticking together in the support tower.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hey @tekublack, thanks for reaching out about this. Please run splice tuning with your PVA and PLA filament to find the right combination of heat, compression, and cool that binds these materials. Our suggested splice settings for PVA <-> PLA are 2,0,2. Hope that helps!

The problem isn't the splices. They stick perfect. It's the layers that don't stick


Hey Joseph, thanks for clarifying - have you tried adjusting the settings outlined in this article here:

That may help with the issue of layer separation in the tower
