NinjaFlex TPU 3D Printing Filament – 1.75mm .50kg – LAVA

NinjaFlex flexible filament leads the industry thanks to its superior flexibility and longevity compared to non-polyurethane materials. Its consistency in diameter and ovality (roundness) outpaces other polyurethane materials.

Made from a specially formulated thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material, this patented technology boasts a low-tack, easy-to-feed texture. The result is uniquely flexible, strong prints ideal for direct-drive extruders.

Suggested Applications: Seals, gaskets, plugs, leveling feet, protective applications.


  • Shore Hardness = 85A
  • Truly flexible (no fill or layer manipulation required to achieve performance)
  • 660% elongation allows for repeated movement and impact without wear or cracking 
  • Polyurethane composition allows for excellent vibration reduction
  • Patented low friction exterior allows for smooth feeding
  • Abrasion resistance 20% better than ABS and 68% better than PLA
  • Consistent diameter and material properties providing reliable, high quality prints
  • Chemical resistant to many materials, including naphtha, ASTM Oils #1-3, petroleum and freon
  • Adheres to all standard build platforms without glue or tape
  • REACH and RoHS 2002/95/EC Directive compliant


  • Extruder Temperature:  225°C – 235°C
  • Platform Temperature: Room temperature – 40°C
    Glue and/ or blue painters tape is suggested if not using a heated bed.
  • Print Speed: 
    Top and bottom layers: 10-20 mm/ sec (600-1200 mm/ min)
    Infill speeds: 15-35 mm/ sec (900-2100 mm/ min)
    Layer 2+ use cooling fan if available.

  1. Experiment with this filament – small changes can make big differences Better than I expected, but still has its drawbacks.First, I am using this on a Monoprice Mini Select V2 3D printer. It’s a Bowden style extruder, so I had to print a spacer to fit ahead of the PTFE tube so the filament will extrude without looping onto itself. It really is the consistency of something like al dente cooked spaghetti.Initially I was able to print at 210C with a 40C heated bed. The next time I tried, it didn’t want to extrude at that temperature so I upped…

  2. Unravel enough length from the spool and omit the filament feed tube — prints very well! This is fun stuff! Use 100% infill for gaskets and watch straps, but drop the infill to 10% for a spongy pillow-like effect on large cavities. Seems durable.The biggest problem was getting it to feed reliably. The trick is to use a direct extruder (e.g. FlashForge Creator Pro) and NOT to use the spool or the plastic filament feed tube. This filament is gummy-ish and does NOT pull off the spool easily nor feed through the tube down into the extruder very well. I was always getting…

  3. Fun stuff, lots of interesting applications. OK, I have to give this 5 stars but it’s not perfect. But, the give and takes are a balance. This is an ‘Expert’ material for a reason. 3D printing the softest rubber is an amazing feat on a consumer-level machine (I’m on a Taz 6 with the Flexystruder v2 head). Any softer and you need to print molds and pour.This material has to print slow and you have to design your print carefully. You aren’t going to get amazing detail with it, but it is quite cool and fun. Doesn’t smell…
