TPE (ThermoPlastic Elastomer) Print Settings

Recommended Posts

Posted · TPE (ThermoPlastic Elastomer) Print Settings

I have managed to get some free samples from http://www.3distributed.com/collections/filaments

They have sent me a few metres of TPE and Nylon. Has anybody managed to achieve a reasonable print with either of these materials.

If so could you let me know the settings you had.

The diameter of the TPE is 2.90

The Diameter of the Nylon is 2.80

I will be using Cura

I'm getting pretty good results using Taulman 645 Nylon, mostly stock hotend:

245C

30mm/s speed

0.2 layer height

2.6 specified filament diameter (3.X actual filament diameter)

No fan during print

Using a piece of 1/16 Birch Ply on top of the normal build platform for adhesion.
