Cheetah flexible filament is the fastest and easiest to print flexible filament on the market. The focus in development of this material was on optimizing the user experience. The result is a filament that is printable across all types of desktop 3D printers at ABS and PLA speeds, many times twice the speed of other flexible materials on the market. Cheetah filament possesses industry leading durability along with impact strength 84% greater than ABS. The abrasion resistance is also second only to NinjaTek Armadillo product, making Cheetah the perfect blend of speed, toughness and strength. Suggested Applications: seals, plugs, hinges, sleeves & snap-fit parts KEY FEATURES: Abrasion resistance 40% better than ABS and 76% better than PLA 580% elongation capabilities improve ability to withstand wear and tear Patented low friction exterior allows for smooth feeding Chemical resistance to many materials, including: naphtha, ASTM Oils #1-3, petroleum and Freon Consistent diameter and material properties providing reliable, high quality prints REACH and RoHS 2002/95/EC Directive compliant PRINTING GUIDELINES: Extruder Temperature: 235°C – 245°C Platform Temperature: Room temperature – 40°C Glue or blue painters tape is suggested if not using a heated bed. Print Speed: Top and bottom layers: 30-45 mm/ sec (600-1200 mm/ min) Infill speeds: 60-80 mm/ sec (3600-4800 mm/ min) Layer 2+ use cooling fan if available.
