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

Recommended Posts

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
