Does anyone has printed with inova 1800, i having trouble with the bed, and the flow
Sure have! But I use S3D as the guy who makes it does also. But I can share our S3D settings with you if you want to try getting anything out of them.
There are Inova profiles for Cura available on the development site though.
For Inova 1800, I set my nozzle temp to 240°, bed to 70°, flow to 90%, filament diameter to 2.85, and z offset to 0.15. Those setting seem to work well on my Mini.
I’m getting a lot of stringiness with this stuff, on our TAZ 5 with .5 nozzle, using Lulzbot Cura 20.01, and starting from the Lulzbot Cura standard high-detail profile . Here’s a rocktopus at 50% scale. I’ve lowered the temperature as low as 235, increased retraction from 4 to 5, lowered the z hop to .075. No real differences except the overall quality when I increased the retraction was poor (the one pictured).
I do have S3D but have no idea where to start with a profile for that. I’m trying to print an iphone lens mount for an ophthalmologist that seems to have pretty close tolerances when assembling the parts, so I thought this would be a good filament choice.
Thanks in advance.
Here is the one I use for S3D. I have not used it for several months now as I ran out.

Thanks! Yeah - it’s expensive so I hate to waste it. I’ll give this a try.
Bbbbbut it comes in a pretty box!!

Using this S3D profile is an improvement, but it’s till seriously stringy. Anyone have any suggestions?
I had very little stringing on the little devil I printed above at the time. But I could have altered the profile while making one for the Taz 6 when I got it.
I can try and find the original file I got from the guy whom makes the filament.
I tried a small, simple print using Inova - 1800 today and it looks horrible. I am trying to print the USB support brace that can be found here. https://www.lulzbot.com/learn/forum-posts/lulzbot-mini-3d-printed-usb-support-brace
However, when I printed it, it looks like this:
I used the profile for Inova - 1800 that is included in CURA 20, standard resolution. I’m guessing that the profile’s print temp of 245 is way too high. I will try the settings suggested by CoParaTech
I use 240 for the 1st Layer, and 235 for other layers.
Cooling Fans off on layers 1-3, 30% layer 4, and 50% layer 5 and up.
Simplify 3D, but shouldn’t matter.
From the pictures, it almost looks like it’s over extruding? Also, what speed are you printing at?
With a TAZ 6 and Simplify3D, my hotend is 250 C and bed is 70 C. My fans kick on to 30% at layer 3 and stay there, but I vary this depending on the size of the part. My spool of blue filament also averages out to about 2.80 mm, so this is the value I use. I have noticed that this filament does fluctuate in diameter a bit.
I’m using CURA 20 and the included profile for Inova 1800 on “standard” resolution.
Print speed: 50 mm/s
Print Temp: 245
Bed Temp: 75
I tried again and reduced the print speed to 40 mm/s with no discernible difference in print quality.
I looked at the S3D Innova-1800 profile I got from the kind C.S.L. person, and I am printing at a 26MM/sec print speed. YMMV! But try printing slower, and I know the amount of the retraction distance affects print quality also(personal experience).
