Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on January 20, 2020
I've tried many different types of flexible filaments over the years, many with very inconsistent results (jamming and feed issues), despite many hours of fine tuning my print profile settings. When I did have success I had to sacrifice nice clean prints and print with a 0.6mm nozzle. But with Sainsmart TPU filament I am able to print with a 0.4mm nozzle and a custom setting print profile and I have had NO problems at all!! I have even been able to print with supports and to date I have not had 1 failed print!!

The key to printing with flexible filaments is to turn retractions off, slow the filament flow down a little and print at about 220 degrees. Also, if you have a PEI bed you MUST use painters tape to cover the bed otherwise you are liable to rip the PEI coating off when removing your print.

Hope this helps and happy printing!!
