Compatibility Alert! The Flexystruder accessory is only compatible with the LulzBot TAZ 3D printer at this time. Do you have a PEI print surface on your TAZ? If so, NinjaFlex and SemiFlex exhibit extreme adhesion to PEI. See recommended printing instructions under the Specifications tab of this product page for more information.

PRINT FLEXIBLE FILAMENTS ON YOUR LULZBOT TAZ

Turn your LulzBot TAZ 3D printer into a flexible filament 3D printing wonder! The Flexystruder accessory enables your 3D printer to print with many types of flexible materials, including NinjaFlex and SemiFlex. Want to level up? Try multi-material 3D printing with the FlexyDually Tool Head for your LulzBot TAZ.

Flexible materials open up a new range of uses for 3D printing, such as: cell phone cases, hinges, robotics, wearables, and much more. The Flexystruder features a special extruder body that limits the path for the materials, so they print faster, more easily, and at higher resolution.

Thanks to TAZ's modular carriage design, installing the Flexystruder only takes a few short steps. And like all products made by Aleph Objects, Inc., the Flexystruder is Open Source Hardware! This means you are free to view the source files and make your own modifications to the part.

  • Printer Compatibility: LulzBot TAZ
  • Required filament diameter: 3mm
  • Nozzle size: 0.5mm

Print Surface: NinjaFlex and SemiFlex exhibit extreme adhesion to PEI print surface. If you plan on doing a high number of prints, we recommend purchasing a separate sheet of bare borosilicate glass to replace the stock bed, then printing with the glass at room temperature. If you plan on doing a low number of prints, we recommend applying common blue painter's tape on top of PEI, then printing with the bed at room temperature. For more information, visit the NinjaFlex and PEI thread on the the LulzBot Forum.
