We print with many different flexible filaments.  We print mainly with TPU and TPE, but the biggest difference in the filaments is the Shore Hardness Number.


We have filaments with Shore Hardness from 85 to 98, with the lower number having the most flexibility.  We find that "cause" bracelets and coffee sleeves print best with more flexible (85 hardness) filament where camera mounts on drones or RC vehicles print better at 90 hardness absorbing the shock of a crash protecting the machine without breaking.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is one of the most commonly used filaments in 3D printing.  It is very durable and can withstand high temperatures.  It's glass transition point (where it will become soft) is 90 degrees C and it will melt at 105 degrees C.  ABS is what Legos (TM) are made of.


ABS can also be post-processed with acetone to provide a glossy, flawless finish using a vapor chamber.  


ABS is best for objects that do not have a large solid footprint, as it is prone to warping corners.

PLA (Polylactic Acid) is one of the most commonly used filaments in 3D printing.  It is biodegradable and is very strong.  It's glass transition point (where it will become soft) is 50 degrees C and will melt at 60 degrees C.  PLA is considered food safe and is used in food containers and medical implants.


PLA is best used for larger items as it can be printed quickly and benefits from cooling fans, and does not warp or crack as easily as  ABS.
