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.
