Need a step by step guide on how to print with ninjaflex on Ultimaker 3.

Are you from USA, right? I believe, following some reviews, that Capricorn bowden tube helps to deal with flexible materials. Looks like that XS model has some lubrificant in their composition that reduce friction: https://www.captubes.com/index.html#products


If you need to print a lot with it, you should take a look to BondTech extruders, they have gears that holds the filament from both sides, providing more torch... it's also more precise during retractions.

I recently asked, on a separate topic in this forum, about compatibility of Kyotoflex withe the UM3. I wonder whether some of the useful tips about Ninjaflex given above would apply to Kyotoflex as well (it's not TPU). The specs page says it's "easy to print even on bowden extruders": http://treedfilaments.com/3d-printing-filaments/kyotoflex

    • "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.
