MakerBot Flexible Filament

MakerBot Flexible Filament for MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D
Printers opens new potential for 3D prints, enabling
functional hinges, joints, and shaped parts.

MakerBot Flexible Filament Spool

Get the most out of your MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer and
create flexible hinges, joints, shaped parts, and things that can be shaped to fit the body.

MakerBot Flexible Filament is a polyester-based filament with a low melting point that makes it easier to extrude.
Heat your print with hot water to reshape and remold it; the form will set when cooled.
MakerBot Flexible Filament is nontoxic, does not absorb water, and is more tolerant of atmospheric humidity than MakerBot PLA Filament or MakerBot ABS Filament.
Special Notes for Loading and Unloading
MakerBot Flexible Filament flows and melts at significantly lower temperatures
than MakerBot PLA Filament. To avoid problems with the filament melting
outside the extruder nozzle, it’s important to load and unload the MakerBot
Flexible Filament at a lower temperature.
When switching between filaments, please follow these important steps
FROM: MakerBot PLA Filament
TO: MakerBot Flexible Filament


Follow the normal Change Filament procedure to load the MakerBot Flexible Filament. To prevent overheating of the MakerBot Flexible Filament inside the extruder, stop the procedure as soon as the previous MakerBot PLA Filament is no longer present.
FROM: MakerBot Flexible Filament
TO: MakerBot PLA Filament


Using the MakerBot Replicator 2 display console, reduce the Change Filament target temperature to 120°C and unload the MakerBot Flexible Filament.

Then, to load MakerBot PLA Filament, increase the temperature to 230°C and load the filament.
IMPORTANT: Any time MakerBot Flexible Filament is loaded or unloaded and there isn’t any prior MakerBot PLA Filament to be purged, you must set the Change Filament temperature to 120°C.
