ninjateck armadillo

Im using this armadillo and it seems ok. I think its tpu 75d. Website sais to treat it like pla, but with higher temps. So far the print quality is crap compared to a well tuned pla print, but the strength is phenomenal! Making thinner layer height helps a little, but not enough to match pla quality. So, Im running thick layers at .15mm and speeds of 40mm per second. Faster speeds seem to make my printer skip steps.

Anybody else using this stuff? Have any tips to improve visual quality, speed, and avoid skipping steps?

I'm using Cheetah on an Ultimaker 2+ with good success I think what you have is the next level up, on hardness, from Cheetah.
