Printing TPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing TPU

Hello Everyone,

Its getting interesting each and everytime when I try something new. But now I have a problem, that when I extrude TPU, the filament which I make is so flexible and this flexible TPU filament is not able to feed to the Ultimaker 2 Printing machine. As I'm looking only for TPU, I'm not flexible enough to mix it with PLA or other materials. But anyone have an Idea to print the flexible TPU filament or to make the TPU filament more rigid.

Thanks in Advance

I appreciate each and every, small and big ideas.

Thanking You

Dilip

What TPU are you using?

The Ultimaker TPU95A works pretty well to print, you just have to take it a bit slower.
