The UltiMaker PVA Removal Station dissolves support material quickly and effectively, making 3D printing complex designs much faster and easier, increasing productivity, and improving workflow time.


Introducing the Ultimaker PVA Removal Station

In the ever-evolving landscape of 3D printing, the introduction of PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) supports marked a huge step forward. Prior to PVA, creators often grappled with the painstaking task of manual support removal, limiting the intricacy and complexity of designs. Suddenly, it was possible to print just about any conceivable geometry, without having to worry about manual removal of supports.

However, anyone who has tried 3D printing with PVA supports can tell you the patience required in dissolving PVA in water. Often, it's not just about waiting for the PVA supports to fully dissolve, but also cleaning the 3D printed piece after.

Enter the UltiMaker PVA Removal Station—a groundbreaking solution for efficient 3D printing support material removal. Imagine effortlessly removing PVA supports, simply by immersing your printed piece into the station’s water tank, pressing a button, and returning to a pristine, support-free print. Dissolve PVA in water without the effort or the mess!

Remove Water-Soluble Supports
Up to 4x Faster

The unique design of the PVA removal station features magnetic rotor-powered water circulation. This ensures PVA dissolution in water up to four times faster than stagnant water solutions, even navigating the trickiest crevices of your print.So you have your parts post-processed and ready to use as soon as possible.

The PVA Removal Station is compatible with all water-soluble support materials offered by 3D Universe, including PVA, Aquasys, and RapidRinse materials.

Boost Your Productivity with Minimal Effort

Slash operator engagement by a staggering 80%. With the UltiMaker PVA Removal Station, removing PVA supports has been streamlined to sheer simplicity. Start the process, attend to other tasks, and come back to find a cleaned print.

Your Design-to-Print Workflow, Simplified

Using the PVA Removal Station in 3 easy steps

Step 1: Pour in tap water up to the indicated mark inside the container. No special water type needed—your regular tap will do! Place it back on its base and gently set your 3D print inside.

Step 2: Start the PVA removal process with the touch of a button. Depending on the support complexity, your wait could range from 1 to 8 hours. Perfect time for a coffee break or to work on your next 3D design!

Step 3: Once done, raise the basket handle and remove your print. Your masterpiece is now support-free and ready. Drain the used water—safe for most household drains—and you're set for another round!

Key Features

Rotor-powered Water Circulation

Dial in perfect water circulation to optimize the PVA removal process. Choose 100 or 225 RPM circulation depending on the fragility of your part. Every two minutes, the rotor changes direction to push water evenly against the model to make sure water reaches all its crevices ensuring even and efficient PVA dissolution.

Prints Stay Safe and Submerged

To prevent floating of unsettled prints, a rinsing basket keeps your print in place and completely submerged while dissolving. Upon completion, the basket lifts up for mess-free draining and print removal.

Easy to Monitor Progress

The UltiMaker PVA Removal Station features a transparent, illuminated tank, enabling you to closely monitor the PVA removal process and determine when your part is fully cleaned. Additionally, the device is equipped with a saturation indicator, signaling when to replace the water.
