TPU Build Surface – Use a build surface like PEI or blue builder’s tape along with glue stick or similar for adhesion. Be careful however if you are using PEI sheets, as TPU sticks very well to these sheets.
Can you print TPU on PEI?
A tad late but I print plenty of TPU and PETG on glass with no problem. I just use hair spray (one good coating when its cool, let it dry a little then heat the bed up to 80 c to bake it ). I then just print with the heated bed set to 80 c. The prints stick and and are easy to remove once the bed cools down.
Do you need enclosure for TPU?
5 Tips for 3D printing with TPU filaments – Type of the extruder: Direct Drive extruder is recommended. Heated print bed: 50 ±10 °C. Cooling: part cooling fan is recommended (medium or high setting) Enclosure: not necessary.
Can you print TPU without a heated bed?
TPU can be printed without a heated print bed – but adhesion will be very poor. The ideal print bed temperature for TPU is 50 ± 10 °C. Print bed adhesion can be further increased by using Blue Tape, PEI films or glue sticks.
What is Flexfill filament?
A technical semi-flexible filament that offers great mechanical properties such as high tear and tensile strength. It is characterized by highly reversible deformation, resistance to ozone, oils, greases, and aliphatic alcohols.
