    This is a great material to work with, but the profile needs to be updated for material station compatibility.  The i150 profile is compatible, but not the i180.  Using generic Nylon and tweaking the print temp works fine until the filament retracts at the end of a print.  I contacted Igus support regarding this back in August and they seemed utterly confused.  


    Please work with Igus to update this profile!


    This material prints great in combination with ColorFabb HT, for dual material prints.  The 2 materials bond together very strongly, without any layer separation issues.  


    When using the i180 as a bearing surface on sliding or rotating shafts; I prefer to slightly under-size the hole and then clean it out with a drill bit.  The material is very easily machined to final size using a drill bit and turning it by hand.
