Nextflex 3D TPU filament is featured by its high strength and flexibility, a hybrid of plastic and rubber. It is of the same factory as sainsmart and is the same apart from the packaging. It's from the same OEM manufacturer.
95A TPU has high abrasion resistance and low compression compared to rubber parts, especially at higher infill. Most of our drone parts are made of TPU as the flexibility allows for more bounce back in a crash and less of a chance of the printA completely smashing.
In comparison with most common filaments like PLA and ABS, TPU must be run much slower.

TPU PRINTING TIPS
- Recommended for printers with direct drive extruder, 0.4~0.8mm Nozzles - We are going be honest with you, if you have Bowden, we don't suggest to try printing TPU. It will just cause headaches and you'll want to throw your printer out the window.
- TPU is extremely hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air). Even if the roll is brand new it will have moisture in it and won't print well. We recommend that all spools be dried before printing as it will greatly improve print quality. If you are getting poor print results the most likely cause is that the roll has absorbed moisture. Drying should be done at 50 degC for 4 hours at least for best results. We put all our new rolls in for 48 hours before printing.
- With that in mind, you will want to try some different settings to your normal PLA or other materials.
- Print slow 15-30 mm/s Printing speed
- First layer settings. (Height 100% Width 150% speed 50% e.g.)
- Retraction disabled. This would reduce messy, stringing or oozing printing result.
- Increase Multiplier(Optional). set to 1.1 would help the filament bond well.
- fan on after layer.
