NinjaFlex - Glass Transition Temperature

Posted · NinjaFlex - Glass Transition Temperature

Hi everyone,

I've been using NinjaFlex on my Ultimaker and had some great results. I've had my bed temperature set to around 65 degrees Celsius as this is approximately the same as NinjaFlex's glass transition temperature according to: http://www.desktop3dprinter.com/ninjaflex-filament/ninjaflex-175mm-fire.... .

I have however found a NinjaTek related article saying it to be -30degrees Celsius. https://ninjatek.com/products/filaments/ninjaflex/ > Tech Spec > Technical Data.

I'm more inclined to believe the NinjaTek one and doing some background research it sounds the most plausible. But then what on earth is this 66 degrees Celsius being quoted by other companies?!

Thanks in advance,

    I use 40ºC as bed temp for Ninjaflex and it works great.

    Glass transition temp for flexible materials should be well below room temp, otherwise they would not be flexible.

    I second this all the way around as I have had similar success.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
