eSUN 3D Printer Filament: PVA
PVA is a support material. Typically it is used with PLA filament. PVA is best printed around 195 Celsius.
When a PLA product is printed out, it can be thrown into water so that the PVA supporting material can be melted away. Cold water would take 4 hours to melt all PVA. Warmer water will melt PVA faster.
PVA is soft, soluble in water under normal temperature.

Easy to print it! WARNING: this material dissolves in WATER including the water in the atmosphere. Keep it in an airtight container with desiccant. You can find excellent color changing desiccant on Amazon that will last you a long time. If you don't do this, it will pop and sputter to the point of completely emptying the nozzle causing your supports to be mostly empty space.
I have confirmed it will stick to (heated bed)
Blue Tape (60C)
Glass with Hairspray (90C)
Glass with Wolfbyte (90C)
Kapton Tape with ABS Slurry (90C)
It also bonds moderately well with other materials.
NinjaFlex (220C) (and other TPU / TPE materials - this one is a little bit tricky to get right)
I have the best results when I print this material very slowly when changing between materials. Unfortunately, most slicers don't have a specific speed setting for dense support layers. To combat this, I use a few extra dense support layers and then set my bridging speed very low: 35% or less of the base speed. The bridging speed applies to the first layer of main print on top of the dense support, so that helps with adhesion.
The real beauty of this filament is that it will bond well enough to do most prints but can easily be removed by hand without the need to dissolve it in most situations. You will need to make sure that your print temps are high enough to remelt the PVA to get any kind of bonding.
See some sample prints attached - gray is ESun PLA+, which is great. The PVA strings badly. It is in a dry box with desiccant. It is not making any popping noises or anything.
Every dual filament job I’ve tried with PVA ends up contaminating the PLA and causing Z shifts. I tried to dial it in as a stand-alone print material and wasn’t able to.
It may work best in a direct drive printer.
Edit: Bumping to 4 stars. It works very well as raft material. No surface scars on print.
I tried drying the filament for 24 hours in a dehydrator and got the same results afterwards. I got a replacement spool, and the results were the same. I've sent them both back, and I've purchased PVA from Matterhackers. It's much better, and it costs the same per gram if you buy a kilo.
I'm not done testing the market, but I can say it sticks to the bed, itself, and PLA, unlike my other PVAs I've tried.
Not only did the eSun PVA splice well to PLA, but it printed without problems, adhered well to the PLA (I used it in "interface" mode for supports), and came off quickly and cleanly when soaked in hot water. I did note that the filament was getting soft towards the end of the print run, so I ran it through a dehydrator to firm it up for the next time.
even when run at 220 I am having no problems with it cooking in the nozzle.
It sticks to blue tape and hair spray fine and a little bit of forgiveness on the nozzle height.
It sticks well to itself, and well enough to the, pla also have used it for petg and it worked.
Unlike the other stuff I tried and gave up in frustration I am quite happy with this stuff.
