How to print FLEX

Flexible things might sometimes be pretty useful. If you need some flat seal type thing you can usually just cut it out of rubber sheet, but what if you need something little more complex? Then printing it using a 3D printer is for most of us the only way to make it.

It is pretty easy if you follow basic rules.:

  1. Use a direct extruder
  2. Lower print speed to 20mm/s
  3. Disable retraction

These are the basics, there are however few more things to consider. I go through everything, including build plate adhesion it the video.
