Flashforge´s Elastic Consumable is soft, high toughness and high resilience 3D Print consumable. Suitable for most proximal feeds FFF 3D Printers.
The product uses thermoplastic polyurethane as raw material, the surface hardness is Shore 95A, it can be stretched to the original length of 3 times more.The interlayer bonding of the print model is very good, the strength of Z-axis direction is not weaker than X, Y-axis direction.
This material will happily print without a heated bed, but with a heated bed available, it likes to sit at around 50 degrees. A good temperature for the nozzle is between 190 and 200 degrees, depending on the thickness of the layers being used. Because this is an incredibly flexible and stretchy filament, it needs to print much slower than other more rigid filaments, at around 20-30 mm/s, and only with a direct drive extruder.
