The primary characteristics of a Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) filament are elasticity and resistance to oil, grease, and abrasion. It's an excellent material to print wheels, belts, and gaskets.
The popular brand is NinjaFlex.
The average temperature for 3D extrusion should be around 210 to 225 degrees Celsius. It prints well on aluminum, acrylic, glass, and tape. A heated bed temperature from 20 to 50 degrees Celsius is helpful.
In general, TPE performs best in printers with direct-drive extruders, using settings similar to a standard rigid ABS filament. It's not recommended to be printed with a Bowden Cable system.
TPE will degrade and lose its elastic properties when submerged in water for extended periods of time.
TPE should be ...
