Features

Once you have installed the tool head, all of the filaments available from NinjaTek will be right at your fingertips. Upon initializing your printer in Cura (Lulzbot Edition) with this tool head, you will have access to a wide range of printer profiles for flexible filaments! You can use SemiFlex® Filaments to product strong, but slightly flexible cases and enclosures for your project, or use NinjaFlex® for strong and stretchy props, costumes, and wearables.

As this extruder uses a PTFE tube to guide the flexible filament down through the tool head, it is not advised that you use rigid filaments such as PLA or ABS with the Flexystruder, as they can cause unnecessary wear and tear on the PTFE. Essentially, you will just want to stick with flexible filaments on your Flexystruder. Not to worry though, swapping out a tool head only requires one screw to fit the whole extruder to the tool head carriage.
