MatterHackers CLEARANCE - Blue Soft PLA - 1.75mm (5lb)
Soft PLA is a flexible 3D printing material that feels and acts much like rubber. Can be used to make parts that can bend or must flex to fit their environment - stoppers, belts, springs, phone cases and more.
Please note, all Clearance Item purchases are final and are not covered by the MatterHackers Return Policy - this excludes Refurbished 3D printers and machines which have at least a 6-month warranty.
Reason for Clearance: This item is being discontinued.
2.3KG of 1.75mm blue colored Soft PLA. This extremely flexible PLA will allow you to create prints that will have the properties of durable rubber, which means that it is remarkably resilient and elastic.
Sticks great to a bed that is layered with blue painter’s tape. We also recommend that you print it at a slower speed than normal PLA.
Our soft PLA is compatible with nearly all 3D printers, including RepRap derivatives and those from MakerBot (such as the Replicator and Replicator 2), Ultimaker, Bits from Bytes, Airwolf3D, Makergear, Printrbot, Bukobot, Type A Machines, and many others. If you have questions about a specific printer not listed, please contact us.
Recommended Extrusion Temperatures: 220°C-235°C
NINJAFLEX VS TPE VS SOFT PLA
All 3 filaments are excellent choices but have different levels of hardness and flexibility. Ninjaflex is the softest with a shore hardness of 85A. TPE is slightly firmer but still very soft with a shore hardness of 90A. Soft PLA is the firmest of the three with a shore hardness of 92A. If your printer has a Bowden tube Soft PLA is the best choice for you.
