Polymakr PolyFlex™ Flexible 3D Printing Filament

Flexible printing material that opens endless possibilities!

Those with the need to print flexible components will be happy to hear that PolyMakr’s new material, PolyFlex, can be twisted and bended all day long. Unlike many other flexible filaments, the new PolyFlex material can be used on most desktop 3D printers available on the market without the need to change extruders or nozzles. It will come in both 1.75mm and 3mm variants.

A common problem with many flexible filaments is speed. This is because they are too soft, which often causes problems with filament feeding. PolyMakr has found a way to increase speed and they believe PolyFlex can be printed at up to 90mm/min. The new flexible filament requires no heated bed and has very little tendency to warp.

PolyFlex™ PLA User Instructions

  • PolyFlex™ is compatible with most desktop FDM/FFF printers .
  • Unlike conventional printing materials (such as ABS and PLA), parts made from PolyFlex™ is flexible and has good elasticity.
  • PolyFlex™ requires no heating to the build plate, and it has good adhesion to most build plate surfaces (the “blue tape”, high temperature polyimide tape, etc.). It also features good interlayer adhesion and generates parts with excellent toughness.
  • PolyFlex™ can be printed together with PolyPlus™ PLA or PolyMax™ PLA on dual-extruder printers such as MakerBot Replicator 2X. This can be used to print objects with both soft and rigid parts.
  • PolyFlex™ tends to absorb atmospheric moisture. Filaments with too much moisture absorption can lead to compromised printing quality. Therefore it is important to keep the PolyFlex™ filament dry. When it is unused, always remove it from the printer and place it in the resealable bag with the desiccant pack; never expose the PolyFlex™ filament in air for extended periods of time.
  • The heart-shaped filament clip is provided to prevent the unraveling of the filament when it is not being used; make sure to remove the clip from the spool before loading the filament to your printer.
