Makerbot Flexible PLA Filament

Makerbot Flexible PLA Filament for Replicator 2 - MP05188

  • Description

    Makerbot Flexible PLA Filament for Replicator 2 - MP05188 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.

    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.

     

    KEY FEATURES:

    MakerBot Flexible Material is a polyester-based material 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 Material is nontoxic, does not absorb water, and is more tolerant of atmospheric humidity than MakerBot PLA Material or MakerBot ABS Material

     

    SPECIAL DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

    MakerBot Flexible Material flows and melts at significantly lower temperatures than MakerBot PLA Material. To avoid problems with the material melting outside the extruder nozzle, it’s important to load and unload the MakerBot Flexible Material at a lower temperature.

     

    **IMPORTANT: Any time MakerBot Flexible Material is loaded or unloaded and there isn’t any prior MakerBot PLA Material to be purged, you must set the Change Material temperature to 120°C**
