Material to print Stamp


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material to print Stamp

Rubbery materials include "ninjaflex", "cheetah", "TPU", "TPC".  These are more difficult to print as you are kind of "pushing on a string" so the feeder has to push very gently which means you have to do some tricks.  Cheetah is about 100X easier to print than ninjaflex because cheetah is a bit stiffer.  Look at the "hardness" of each of these materials to get an idea.  Ninjaflex is like rubber band material.  It's the softest but Cheetah is quite soft as well (think sneaker sole).  The hardness will be a letter and number like "50D".  Each letter A,B,C,D is a different scale and you can find translation tables and learn if 30D or 50A is harder or if they are the same, etc.

 

The material station isn't going to help much and your material could get clogged in there (probably not) so I'd be ready for some headaches.

 

But the most important thing:  I don't know if these absorb inks.  I don't know if these are good for making stamps.  Maybe do some googling around about 3d printing stamps (in the hobby areas just to learn some things as hobbyists are always ahead in the learning curve).

 

Once you pick a material ask again for suggestions on settings as these are tricky materials to print and you want all the advice you can get.
