Introduction to Flexi- material

The flexible filament material that we use in our professional 3D printing service is made from thermoplastic and rubber materials. This makes a hard but flexible material which demonstrates suspension like properties. 

Description

Pros

This is a Flexible and soft material which is therefore very good for vibration dampening

Post print, it has a very long storage life meaning your models should last longer even if not being constantly utilised.

Due to its mix of rubber and plastic, it becomes a good impact resistor/ suspension.

Cons

Can be harder to print so some irregularities are more common.
