Flexible filament is a 3D-Printer filament that give your 3D-Prints the flexible properties of rubber. Well suited for custom smartphone cases or sealings. The flexible filament we offer at Hestay is rated at medium flexible, compareble with a silicon smartphone case.
Flexible filament, also known as TPE (Thermal Plastic Elastomer), is a synthetic rubber that offers elastic properties at room temperature but turns into a thermoplastic when heated. This thermoplastic property allows the filament to be 3D-Printed into any shape desired.
Pro’s and Con’s of Flexible filament:
+ Create rubberlike 3D-Prints
+ Odorless during printing
- Very low printing speed required (<20 mm/s)
Flexible filament can only be properly printed at low printing speeds. We highly recommend visiting the Flexible filament 3D-printer settings page about recommended 3D-Printer settings. Here you will find all the necessary information and required 3D-Printer settings to start 3D-Printing successfully with Flexible filament right from the start.
Other specific informational topics about this product can be found under the tab ‘’Specifications’’ under the product picture.
If you are experiencing problems during 3D-Printing with Flexible filament, take a look under the tab ‘’3D-Print support’’ on the top of the page. Here you will find explanations and solutions to many common problems that can occur during 3D-Printing.
If you are unsure about which filament you need to choose for your projects, take a look at our filament comparison page. There you can find a table filled with all the available filaments and their corresponding properties setup so you can find the filament that suits your application perfectly.
