Flex EcoPLA? filament is a rubber-like 3D printer filament which allows you to print flexible objects, such as rubber machine parts, soft toys, flip-flops, and other rubbery items. Flex EcoPLA? opens doors to a whole new field of application when it comes to desktop 3D printing. It?s up to your own imagination what you would like to create and print. Flex EcoPLA? is a flexible PLA 3D printer filament with a Shore hardness of 45D.
Our Flex EcoPLA? filament has a much lesser carbon footprint than typical co-polyester 3D printer filaments. This flexible PLA filament offers up to 50% lower carbon footprint than traditional co-polyester materials. Next to this, the complete process from sourcing the chemical recipe to the actual extruding of the Flex EcoPLA? filament is being done in the Netherlands. This reduces the ?travel distance? of this material significantly, meaning that less fossil fuels are being used to get this material into our warehouse.
Main differences between PLA and Flex EcoPLA? filament
The main difference between ?normal? PLA filament and Flex EcoPLA? flexible PLA filament is that normal PLA is rather stiff, where Flex EcoPLA? ? as its name implies ? is very flexible. When stressed normal PLA will break. Our Flex EcoPLA? flexible PLA filament will not break when stressed. It will bend in every direction, but it will definitely not break!. We dare you to try to break it?.
Flex EcoPLA? Flex Black filament has a great roundness and very tight diameter and ovalidity tolerances. This flexible PLA 3D printer filament is spool-wrapped on a polystyrene plastic spool with 500 grams of filament.

- Print Temperature Guideline ± 210° C
It is recommended to lower your printing speed (compared to printing with normal PLA) when printing with Flex EcoPLA? flexible PLA. The guideline for an optimal printing temperature is to print at approximately 210° C. Please do keep in mind that above are only guidelines and that every desktop 3D printer requires different settings for optimal printing results.
