Print on a heated bed at about 20-50°C. NinjaFlex® bonds well to most surfaces (including aluminum and glass, blue painters tape, etc.), so coating the build platform is not necessary. Kapton tape can be used with NinjaFlex®, but the adhesion of the printed part to the tape may be stronger than the adhesive holding the tape to the build platform.
The suggested 3D print speed is around 20-30 mm/s.
When switching from another polymer (such as ABS or PLA) purge thoroughly before starting a print. As with other materials, when preheating, use a lower temperature (~180-200°C) to prevent excess material from draining prior to starting a print.
While NinjaFlex® is resistant to most oils, it is highly affected by solvents, acids, and fuels such as gasoline. If the printed part should need to be cleaned, a mild soap solution is recommended.
Due to all the different types of hot-end it's extremely difficult to give a temperature advice. Please consider our tips as a starting point to find the temperatures that work well in your setup. You may have to adjust the temperature settings slightly based on your type of printer.
