NINJA ARMADILLO

Recommended Posts

Has anyone any success printing smaller parts with NINJA ARMADILLO (TPU type of filament, I think) on a Ultimaker 3. I seem to have problems with the model partially 'melting" as it prints, the nozzle seems to quash the print maybe. the part is a buffer measuring 6mm diameter 5mm long, so it is small.

I have tried Ultimaker TPU 95 settings and Ninja recommendation with the same problem

But it prints ok with PLA??

The filament is 2.85mm

Any thoughts greatly appreciated

I have only tried a tiny bit with Cheetah or Armadillo. And, nothing that small. But maybe if you cut the temp back a bit?

That would be my first try and then second would be to slow down the print speed.

    • "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.
