Looking for Shore 100 TPU


Recommended Posts

Posted · Looking for Shore 100 TPU

Hi, where are you located? There are lots of TPU 98A filaments out there, and some even harder TPU 58-60D ones. Shore 100A isn't reliably measureable, since it is defined as zero indentation by the probe - a granite slab would also have "Shore 100A", even if this rating is meaningless. Shore D uses a different probe and a much higher loading. See also http://www.m-coat.com/Shore A-D conversion.pdf .

    Ok, so you're in the U.S. - meaning it probably won't help you if I give you a link to some european shop's offer ;)


    Glad that you found something - be aware though that Shore 70D will be really, really hard, not just a little bit harder than Shore 95A. With 70D, you are well into the "territory" of normal thermoplastics, for example PP will, according to the sources I found online, have between 70 and 80 Shore D. With TPU, you will still get the elastomeric spring-back properties PP doesn't have, but a Shore 70D TPU won't be very flexible anymore probably.

      • 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.
