An awesome flexible elastic filament. This is a TPE (thermoplastic elastomer). You will not believe your prints can flex like this!
This filament is compatible with most printers, but may require addition of a supporting tube between the hobbed bolt and the hot end. The E3D Titan or Titan Aero works great for this!
