2.85mm NinjaFlex by NinjaTek
NinjaFlex 3D printing filament performs with an exciting combination of elongation, elasticity, and strength. Simply put, it is the stretchiest material we have ever tested. NinjaFlex comes in many colors that have a beautiful, strong sheen after being 3D printed. Like SemiFlex, NinjaFlex is a premium and high quality filament material capable of opening the door to a wide range of new applications for your LulzBot desktop 3D printer
- Shore Hardness = 85A
- 660% elongation allows for repeated movement and impact without wear or cracking
- Separate accessory recommended!
Successful 3D prints with flexible filament start with tool head that features a completely constrained filament path. LulzBot Mini 2 users are ready to 3D print with flexible filament.
LulzBot Mini 1, LulzBot TAZ 6, and 5 3D Printer users should upgrade to:
- Print Surface Recommendation:
NinjaFlex 3D printing filament adheres exceedingly well to our PEI print surface.. We strongly recommend applying PVA glue (white school glue) directly on the print surface using a glue stick (such as Elmer's® brand) before printing to ensure easy part removal.
This filament's soft elasticity, especially combined with the custom nature of 3D printing, make it ideal for costumes, cell phone cases, covers, grips, and thin sturdy membranes. When using hexagonal infill you can even create objects that are stiffer along one axis orientation, while the other axes remain soft and squishy. Since NinjaFlex is softer and bends more easily, it needs to be printed with the Flexystruder Tool Head. NinjaFlex's high elasticity also requires it to be printed at lower speeds and at a larger layer height than standard filaments.
Advanced users can utilize its ability to bind to ABS when using a FlexyDually Tool Head to make prosthetics, live hinges, wearables, and other projects requiring flexible, complex 3D printed items.
