This is an excellent overview of the Flexible Filaments! I would love to see a Part 2 with Kodak FLEX 98, Matterhackers PROFlex TPE and some of the other brands of Flex filaments, very good comparison and great choice of models to print with different variables. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Very Helpful Thanks

Thanks just got tough 115a

Nico Myers says:

Nice review! I like that you went over support removal too, that’s an important aspect that’s usually overlooked. Which of these materials would you say is the “grippiest”? Like if I was making a handle for something and didn’t want to slip. Again, great video!

Potent Printables says:

Really helpful, thanks for the great video!
