Filament suggestions

Post by pezmoses » Fri Nov 02, 2018 9:45 am

Hi,

I have a Lulzbot Taz 6 and wanted to 3D print a part that is currently made from TPU (Thermoplastic PolyUrethane) with a shore hardness of 70A. I was looking to buy a filament for this and found NinjaFlex (https://www.lulzbot.com/store/filament/ninjaflex). Is this the appropriate filament or is there something better out there? Can this be used with the Taz 6?

NinjaFlex is reported to have a shore hardness of 85 so depending on your needs that may still be a good fit.

In order to print flexible materials with your Taz 6 you will need either a Flexystuder or an Aerostruder to do so.
