Has anybody looked at or tried the filaments from igus?

Check www.igus.co.uk and search for filament.

The site also have a CAD library of STL files for their products

Never tried their filament but Igus is a great company with some great products in general.

Their plastic bearings/linear slides are great and not too expensive

Waiting for a couple of samples to come through to see what they print like, it's good that their CAD library is available to all.

Hi,

I'm interested on tribo-filaments as well. I hope these will give me a better solution to built a fully functional acme screw thread!

Any update on igus filaments?

I tried the tribo filament. I was a bit of a pain to have the print stick to the heated glass. I had to use 3DLac spray (something like hairspray).

I printed with a 0.25mm nozzle and in the end it clogged so bad I had to throw the nozzle away :(

Not saying the filament is bad, I was jut too much of a noob to print with it...
