Makerbot Flexible Print Filament 1.75mm 1Kg Spool (205147)
More flexible than MakerBot PLA Filament, MakerBot Flexible Filament creates new opportunities to stretch the limits of 3D printing. You can modify your prints by carefully heating them in hot water until they become translucent. The time this takes will depend on the density of the print. You can then reshape and mold them. Slice your design file in MakerWare 2.3 using the MakerBot Flexible Filament material profile. To take best advantage of the filament's properties, print it with 10% infill or less. MakerBot Flexible Filament adheres well to acrylic; it doesn't adhere well to painter's tape and glass. A level build plate is especially important so be sure your build plate is level, clean and oil-free before printing. Care and storage: To preserve the filament form while spooled, store MakerBot Flexible Filament in a cool area away from heat sources. Size: 1kg

Glass Temperature: ~60° C (~140° F)
Melting Temperature: 58-60° C (136.4-140° F)
Nozzle Temperature: 100° C (212° F)
Filament Diameter: 1.75mm

SPECIAL NOTES FOR LOADING AND UNLOADING
MakerBot Flexible Filament flows and melts at significantly lower temperatures than MakerBot PLA Filament. To avoid problems with the filament melting outside the extruder nozzle, it's important to load and unload the MakerBot Flexible Filament at a lower temperature.

When switching between filaments, please follow these important steps:

FROM: MakerBot PLA Filament
TO: MakerBot Flexible Filament

Follow the normal Change Filament procedure to load the MakerBot Flexible Filament. To prevent overheating of the MakerBot Flexible Filament inside the extruder, stop the procedure as soon as the previous MakerBot PLA Filament is no longer present.

FROM: MakerBot Flexible Filament
TO: MakerBot PLA Filament

Using the MakerBot Replicator 2 display console, reduce the Change Filament target temperature to 120°C and unload the MakerBot Flexible Filament.

Then, to load MakerBot PLA Filament, increase the temperature to 230°C and load the filament.
IMPORTANT: Any time MakerBot Flexible Filament is loaded or unloaded and there isn't any prior MakerBot PLA Filament to be purged, you must set the Change Filament temperature to 120°C.
