#3DPrinting with NinjaFlex SemiFlex #3DThursday #3DPrinting
In this video we’re reviewing NinjaFlex’s new flexible filament from Fenner Drives, SemiFlex.
• Works great for rugged enclosures
• Raspberry Pi A+: http://youtu.be/G2pVDQ8z3WA
• Offers less friction, shock absorption properties
• Useful in large wearables that need rigidity
Like in our spikes projects:
• cyber spikes: http://youtu.be/xZWZjGvfP4I
• horns: http://youtu.be/bCWwGr9Xcok
• dino spikes: http://youtu.be/mHCdhRwVMHM
• Better retraction attributes
• Snap together parts hold great
like in our armband projects:
• flora band: http://youtu.be/S9UJF6ui7AE
• mini pov: http://youtu.be/3JSRFiZ0T6M

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

On behalf of the NinjaFlex team, we want to thank the Adafruit team for your constant support of our products.
SemiFlex was designed to expand the possibilities of 3D printing while providing the flexibility and power of NinjaFlex. We’d love to see what others are printing with NinjaFlex and/or SemiFlex; what are you creating?
I just received the new sample of Semiflex and am looking forward to testing it. As for Ninjaflex, I have made and sold numerous wallets belive it or not ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:253197 ) as well customized luggage tags (customers tell me that their tags are extremely resilient)…the strength of Ninjaflex has been a great selling point. Looking forward to testing the new stuff.
