TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) is a subclass of thermoplastics which prints strong parts that are also flexible

Compatible with all FDM printers on the market which accept 1.75 mm filament; Including Prusa i3, Monoprice MakerSelect, SainSmart xCreality, and other RepRap printers

With proper settings, TPU is easy to print thanks to excellent bed adhesion and the filament’s tendency to not warp

Printing Tips:

  • A consistent and slow feed rate is key to successful printing with TPU.
  • As a hygroscopic material, TPU absorbs moisture easily, drying the filament before printing allows for a smooth finish.
  • Printing TPU Filament with a direct drive extruder is recommended, though it is possible to print with a Bowden extruder, it requires more tweaking.

  • Cooling Fan: On after the first layer
  • Increase Multiplier: 1.1, should increase bonding
  • Do not over extrude filament when loading. As soon as the filament starts protruding from the nozzle, stop. Loading any faster will cause the filament to get caught in extruder gear.
  • Feed the filament directly to the extruder, and not through the feeder tube. This reduces back tension in the filament as well as drag, ensuring proper feeding.
