Checking this box will generate support structures on your model wherever there are overhangs equal to or exceeding the default “Overhang threshold”.

Is PETG moisture resistant?

PET-G. If you are printing a 3D model that needs to be watertight, then consider using PETG (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified). Not only is this 3D filament water-resistant with a strong water and moisture barrier, but it is also a very easy material to print.

PVA filament has a translucent, white appearance. It is resistant to oil as well as grease and solvents, and has excellent adhesive properties.

How many filaments can a Prusa i3 multi material 2.0 handle?

MMU2S has a brand new body with a rotating pulley barrel and a single extruder motor. Load up to 5 filaments and the selector head with a filament-cutting blade will take care of automatic loading and unloading. The second generation of our Multi Material Upgrade supports up to 5 filaments loaded at the same time.

Which is soluble interface supports with Prusa i3 MK2?

First is BVOH from Verbatim and second is PVA from Primaselect. We carry both on our e-shop. Other soluble support materials we tried were very stringy and occasionally jammed the multiplexer. BVOH compared to regular PVA produces much less stringing and can be basically printed with PLA print settings.
