Re: Spray on PVA glue

I tried the water spray as you suggest but just ended up removing all the glue and starting over..
Guess will try mixing some glue and water just for fun to see if it will work.

Re: V4 nozzle leaks (mess)

Re: V4 nozzle leaks (mess)

Don't think it is going to work so not really important with this model. Just never have printed anything with a ramp like this.. and y...
