Default NinjaFlex - Flexible 3D Printing Filament

Anyone know anything about this new flexible filament for 3D printing? I could see it having some good uses for things like small heli landing gear and such. Pretty interesting. Now I just need a 3D printer

NinjaTek is the name of the company that makes NinjaFlex filament. NinjaFlex filament is apparently pretty "soft", and challenging to print correctly. NinjaTek's newer Cheetah filament is not as flexible as NinjaFlex, but it is advertised as much easier to print.

Ninjaflex would be good for things like phone cases. It's pretty flexible and likely would not be a good choice for landing skids.

A lot of people insist a direct drive system is the only way to print filaments like this, but I know a couple people who are using a bowden setup successfully.

You have to make sure your print speed is kinda slow.
Too much speed and you compress the filament in the tubing.

It is flexible filament after all.

Yeah, NinjaTek is a nightmare to print. Nylon is easier!
