Thanks a lot for all you suggestions, I had the same issues, printing with FlexiFill from FormFutura. The final print settings that worked for me were:

Temperature 230ºC

Bed temperature 67ºC

Speed: 10mm/s for every speed options only the travel speed was set to 150mm/s

Layer: 0.1 mm

No(!) glue on the bed

Brim support to start with

And last but not least I wiped the filament with a cloth on which I sprayed WD40, because I would not spray the WD40 in my tube, I don't know what the effect is on other filament that's why I did it this way around.

The print is in the bottom layers not yet perfect, some spider wires I suppose I have to lower the fan speed to 50% for a longer time.

Before this I've tried several settings but my main issue is was loosening from the bed, and the last one I tried without the glue and it sticked nicely.

Hello Members, Do you know if i get a problem with machine oil in the tube when i am printing with normal pla "after printed with flexible pla" and don't clean it between those steps?

Don't worry about the oil. For some reason it seems to have no affect on regular PLA either.

I did not test with Flex PLA, but on the internet I read that ninjaflex is even much more flexible and harder to print than Flex PLA. I could print Ninjaflex and Semiflex without oil using this mod: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker-2-straight-tube-flexible-filament-spool-holder. Maybe it is usefull for somebody, so just this hint.
