More flexible PLA

Posted · More flexible PLA

Is anyone familiar with flexible PLA from MatterHackers?

If you have used it, what can you tell me about it. Is it reliable to be used in the Ultimaker 2, is it just OK, or should I stay away from it at all cost?

Flexible PLA on ultimaker 2 in general is a headache. You can improve its functionality using this mod: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker-2-straight-tube-flexible-filament-spool-holder. I did not test your flexible material, but ninjaflex works great (I can make layers of 0.1mm height), so I think it should work with any flexible filament.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
