NinjaFlex, a flexible filament for 3D printers, is specially formulated thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that produces flexible prints with elastic properties. According to its provider Fenner Drives, NinjaFlex's unique flexibility and smooth feeding characteristics enable you to create clean and high-quality printed parts.

NinjaFlex is suitable for FDM (Fused deposition modeling) 3D printers that use 1.75mm or 3mm ABS or PLA filament.

Features:

  • Filament shore hardness of approximately 85A
  • Consistent diameter and material properties
  • Patent pending technology allows for smooth feeding
  • Low tack, low CoF exterior allows smooth feed through filament guides
  • High elasticity and excellent abrasion resistance
  • Excellent build platform adhesion and bonding between layers
  • REACH and RoHS 2002/95/EC Directive Compliant
  • Recommended extruder temperature: 210 - 230°C
  • Recommended platform temperature: 30 - 40°C

Prices: approx. €37 - 1.75mm filament spool (0.50 kg); approx. €44 - 3.00mm filament spool (0.75 kg)

I've yet to find a manufacturer or reseller that provides decent usage recommendations. Extrusion temperature just isn't enough. Like troubleshooting jams. What things should I try? Increase temp? Decrease? Increase or decrease feeds? What what heat bed surface and temperatures works best for the material? Should there be a fan cooling the part, once extruded? What is a good feed rate range to start with? One brand has been selling for 9 months and they still haven't posted this kind of basic information. It makes me wonder if they have much experience with their own product. The material is too expensive to waste on a lot of experiments. If a business is going to market an exotic filament, they should also be providing this information right off the bat.

The orbi tech TPE is not the same kind of flexible. It bends, but you can't stretch it like rubber, it will just expand and stay that way. Although i didn't touch NinjaFlex yet, I'm pretty shure the TPE from orbitech is tougher though. So it depend on what you want to make, i used it for this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:198388

We just bought a spool from Fenner Drives and tested it on a MakerBot Replicator 2X. We had to print at much lower temperatures than they recommended on their web site to get it to feed properly into the extruder, but it printed a perfect gasket model once we made that adjustment. It may be pricey, but it's fun to play with.

Price is too high.

Price seems pretty high just to try it out. I'd need a few meters before I'd invest that much.
