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. 8-)

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.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Here is the one I use for S3D. I have not used it for several months now as I ran out. :oops:

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. 8-)
