TPU filament like Filaflex and Ninjaflex are the best materials for 3D printing wearables like bracelets, watch bands, and phone cases because it can be printed flat.
NinjaFlex is a specially formulated thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that produces flexible prints with elastic properties. Patent pending technology allows for smooth feeding and clean, high-quality printed parts. NinjaFlex’s unique flexibility and smooth feeding characteristics enable you to create in ways you never thought possible.
Ninjaflex is best suited for Fused Deposition 3D printers that use 1.75mm or 3mm filament or 3D printers that accept other types of filaments (like ABS and PLA).
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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
