Discover Something New: Printing Flex Means New Opportunities

Discover Something New: Printing Flex Means New Opportunities

Should you be printing with rubber? Fiberlogy has been the leader in creating durable, reliable flexible filaments for 3D printing. These materials are also very easy to get started with if you're new to flexible filament. 

They also recently launched the new MattFlex 40D - a flexible filament with a unique matte finish instead of the traditional glossy look. You can read more about MattFlex 40D and how it changes things for many printing possibilities in this article.  

Take a look at the different flexible materials and how they compare to each other.

FIBERLOGY FIBERFLEX 40D

Fiberlogy 40D enables you to print faster flexibles with better accuracy, without disrupting the integrity of your prints. 

Those new to flexible filaments can enjoy the ease of printing 40D, compared with softer flexible filament that can be more advanced and require more troubleshooting as well as slower printing speeds.

 

FIBERLOGY FIBERFLEX 30D

FIBERFLEX 30D allows you to create more flexible prints that stand up to high impact situations like tires, gaskets, etc. 

30D offers more give and flexibility compared with 40D  (softer and more flexible). 

Both 30D and 40D are very flexible filaments and desired for many applications from fashion to big industry prototyping and end use items.

FIBERLOGY MattFlex 40D 

MattFlex 40D enables you to easily create flexible prints with a beautiful Matte finish.

Speed and Accuracy: Print faster flexibles (< 60mm/s) with better accuracy, without disrupting the integrity of your prints. 

Easy: Those new to flexible filaments can enjoy the ease of printing 40D, compared with softer flexible filament that can be more advanced and require more troubleshooting as well as slower printing speeds. 

Elasticity up to 6X times

FIBERLOGY PP

PP from Fiberlogy - Flexible and durable: prints designed with Polypropylene in mind can be some of the most durable prints achievable with todays materials

Attention to Detail: The molecular structure and raw materials gives PP excellent adhesion between print layers when printing
