First print with Ninjaflex flexible filament

Postby nkloski » Fri Mar 27, 2015 9:38 am

Very happy with how the TAM printer prints with Ninjaflex. This is my first print with this material, and I obviously have some tweaking to do (probably temperature and retraction settings) but still, very happy to have my first print with "best guess" settings turn out entirely workable! Cool!

Printed at 240 degrees, 20mm/sec print speed, .84 retraction @ 40mm/sec retraction speed

To stop the blobbing and strings, I would probably try next time to up the retraction to 2mm@50mm/sec and drop the temperature to 230 to see how that worked....

Very cool, thanks for the pics. Glad to see it works quite well. Is that with a stock G2 extruder?

"pretty darn"

I don't thin I could rip it apart, no matter from any vector I would try.....well "maybe" the thing walls if I pulled in the direction to shear with the lay-by-layer process, but is is pretty strong.
