Ultimaker TPU95a on UM3

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, just got an Ultimaker 3 and am loving it.

I would like to use a flexible filament for a project and was wondering if anybody has printed with Ultimaker TPU 95a on the Ultimaker 3? Ive been digging around the forums and couldn't find a clear consensus. I definitely do not want to damage my new baby. If time wasn't a factor, I would wait for the cura profile to be released. I was thinking about altering the recommended settings for the ultimaker 2.

If anybody has used TPU 95a or any other flexible/semi-flexible filament on the Ultimaker 3 please get in touch with me. Thanks again.

I've used it and it worked well. I printed a squeeze bottle with TPU95A and PVA and didn't have any problems other than some PVA going astray and ending up in the wrong place and a bit of grinding on the PVA (not UMs brand, so that could've been a factor).

I printed using the recommendations found here:

Thanks for the reply, I will give it a shot. In a previous thread (https://ultimaker.com/en/community/33393-tpu-95a-filament-under-extursion) someone recommended using a lower fan speed for the UM3. Im not sure what model the OP had but I'll try a lower fan speed at first.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
