MakerBot Flexible Filament
More flexible than MakerBot PLA Filament, MakerBot Flexible Filament
creates new opportunities to stretch the limits of 3D printing.
You can modify your prints by carefully heating them in hot water until they
become translucent. The time this takes will depend on the density of the print.
You can then reshape and mold them.
Every filament color is comprehensively quality tested at both 100-micron and 200-micron layer resolutions on the MakerBot Replicator 2 to verify that the filament will perform every feature that MakerBot Desktop software offers and reliably slice and print every type of printing.
Slice your design file in MakerBot Desktop using the MakerBot Flexible Filament material profile.
To take best advantage of the filament’s properties, print it with 10% infill or less.
MakerBot Flexible Filament adheres well to acrylic; it doesn’t adhere well to painter’s tape and glass.
A level build plate is especially important so be sure your build plate is level, clean and oil-free before printing.
Care and storage: To preserve the filament form while spooled, store MakerBot Flexible Filament in a cool area away from heat sources.
