This is a 0.5kg roll of 1.75mm Elastic filament as made by Flashforge. These filaments work incredibly well with any 3D printer that takes 1.75mm filament. This filament is incredibly elastic, meaning that not only will it flex back and forwards, but it will also stretch incredibly far, giving it incredibly unique properties in 3D printing. This works well in specific engineering projects, along with more experimental work, such as fashion or interactive art pieces.
At the superstore, we’ve found this material will happily print without a heated bed, but with a heated bed available, likes to sit at around 50 degrees. A good temperature for the nozzle is between 190 and 200 degrees, depending on the thickness of the layers being used. Because this is an incredibly flexible and stretchy filament, it needs to print much slower than other more rigid filaments, at around 20-30mm/s, and only with a direct drive extruder.
These spools will fit on nearly every 3D printer, having a large inner spool diameter, while still being quite thin and petite. We have yet to find a printer it doesn't happily sit in.
These filaments will work well with any printer that takes 1.75mm. They might however require an external spool holder if they do not fit on the spool holder that comes with the printer.
This is a new-upgraded formulation engineered by Flashforge helps to minimize filament problems such as curling and bubbles during printing. The new anti-moisture ingredients included in this formulation permits longer storage time without loss of quality.
More precise and stable
Flashforge's new filaments have passed through high-precision laser diameter measuring test, guaranteeing stability of filament diameter, ensuring that the filament doesn't get stuck or slip during printing.
Durable for storage - better to use
Flashforge's new filament series has a damp-proof and anti-cracking formula applied to the filament in production, lengthening the storage time when not using the material. This lets you use all your filament, no matter how long it's in storage.
New process - higher pureness
Flashforge's new filament series is made up of a new formula, which is mixed and produced in a controlled and dust free workshop, preventing any possibility of dust mixing as common with cheaper brands, letting us say goodbye to needless extruder blocking
