PolyFlex by Polymaker
3D print flexible filament faster with PolyFlex™ by Polymaker. With the LulzBot Flexystruder Tool Head this specialty filament can be printed at higher speeds, reducing 3D print times compared to other flexible filaments. PolyFlex filament is produced to exacting tolerances, exhibiting consistent filament diameters for fine surface finishes.Product Alert (2)
- 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:
PolyFlex 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.
Composed of 90% thermoplastic urathane (TPU) and 10% polylactic acid or polylactide, commonly known as PLA, to give this blend more stiffness and hardness while still retaining flexibility. PolyFlex is perfect for strong printed objects that need to flex while still holding their shape. The manufacturer reports a hardness of 90-95 Shore A which is slightly more flexible than SemiFlex, at 98 Shore A hardness.

Print Surface: To make removing 3D printed PolyFlex objects easier, we strongly recommend applying a glue stick (such as Elmer's® brand) applied to the print surface prior to powering on your LulzBot 3D printer. Maintain the print surface by powering off your LulzBot and cleaning the glue stick residue with a soft cloth and water.
