SainSmart TPU has commonly used to 3D print a wide variety of items such as custom phone case, stress toys, R/C cars tires and shock absorbers. SainSmart TPU is fantastic for resistance sudden impacts and movements, for applications such as vibration dampening and shock absorption.
SainSmart TPU filament is renowned for its high strength and flexibility. With the design freedom of 3D printing, SainSmart filament is the key to bringing your project, whether it be a weekend hobby or prototyping for a Fortune 500 company, from the sketchpad to reality. Each spool of SainSmart TPU filament comes with 0.8 kg/1.76 lb of material. This filament is drawn out to a diameter of 1.75 mm with a dimensional accuracy of +/- 0.05 mm, making it the perfect choice for most printers on the market.
- Diameter: 1.75 mm
- Material: Flexible TPU
- Net Weight: 0.8 kg
- Shore Hardness: 95 A
Recommended Printer Settings
- Print Nozzle: 0.4 – 0.8 mm
- Extruder Temperature: 195 – 230 oC
- Print Bed Temperature: 40 – 60 oC
- Cooling Fan: On
Printing Tips For Bowden Drive Printers
- Print Slower: 15 – 30 m/s
- First Layer Settings: 100% Height. 150% Width, 50% Speed
- Disable Retraction: Should reduce oozing and stringing
- Cooling Fan: On after first layer
- Increase Multiplier: 1.1, should increase bonding
- Do not over extrude filament when loading. As soon as the filament start protruding from the nozzle, stop. Loading any faster will cause the filament to get caught in extruder gear.
- Feed the filament directly to the extruder, and not through the feeder tube. This reduces back tension in the filament as well as drag, ensuring proper feeding.

best tpu i tried
Great quality price ratio
I've been using this filament for flexible printing parts for a while and it's great and sturdy, very resistant.
Great! Perfect color and shore hardness.
Great TPU When Using Direct Extruders
This TPU filament is tricky stuff when using a Bowden extruder, but works like a dream with my Flashforge (direct extruders). I tried it on my CR-10, and the results were not so good. Somethings printed OK -- barely so, but it seems the filament retractions with a Bowden extruder causes pulsing of the extruded TPU. This results (so it seems) in the hotend nozzle catching the tiny blobs of plastic on the next layer, and making the layers messy. I will try again with the CR-10, as I believe reducing the retraction to about 2.5mm, and using no infill will help. I do think the infill printing is where print quality really suffers.
Easy to print, decently flexible, nothing to complain about
Easy to print, reasonably flexible, nothing to complain about. I am printing this at 230C with good layer adhesion. I got poor extrusion at 210 and poor layer adhesion at 220. I am using a cheap Monoprice printer so I don't guarantee the accuracy of my nozzle thermistor. I print on a GeckoTek HT plate which doesn't have a recommended temp for flex filament but 50C has been serving me well. I've never used Ninjaflex but my understanding is that it is softer, more gummy bear like than this filament but also harder to print. I think this is a bit softer than most TPU cell phone cases.
Great if you have the correct settings.
Really good stuff IF you have an extruder that can handle flexible filaments, AND if you realize that it prints at a much lower temp than standard PLA. I normally print PLA at 220 in my Makergear M2 with v3b extruder, but this prints great at 185. I also slow my print speeds below 50 mm per second. Trying to print with standard PLA settings will probably be frustrating, just cool it down, and slow it down and you'll be rewarded with shiny, tough, flexible prints.
Prints with my Monoprice Select Mini 3D, also purchased here on Amazon. I love the color and that I can print TPU with my sub $200 printer! You will need to do the flex filamnet mod to the extruder and i'm printing to a glass bed but this is no different than you'd need to do on pretty much any other 3D Printer. I'm currently printing at 227 degrees, 30mm/sec and 50% fan with combing enabled.
