Hi folks,

 

I am looking for a pair of compatible Ultimaker filament for dual extrusion printing a flexible member such as TPU into a rigid plastic such as ABS.

 

This is an example application: https://youtu.be/9hix87v8LDo

 

 

He used NinjaFlex Midnight Black TPU (2.85mm) with Silver PRO Series ABS (2.85mm). Is there a similar recommended and compatible combination with Ultimaker filament? If not, can I get similar results on the Ultimaker with this combination?

 

Thanks.

    Should be possible. The two materials are definitively compatible. An issue could be stringing of the TPU.
