    Ninjaflex. Semiflex. TPU... be careful since getting them working is harder. Doable but more effort.

    Well, ended up with Hatch box TPU. You were right, definitely harder to get set up properly. I am struggling to get good prints on simple parts that performed well with other filaments, PLA, ABS, Etc.

    Recommended settings were
    190 to 210 degrees
    Bed 70
    fan on
    30mm/s speed or less
    low retraction.

    Kept jamming or stopping extruding.
    Lowered retraction to 1 from 3
    raised temp 2 times to 250
    Low quality (.3 layers)
    Print made it all the way through but looks pretty bad as far as finish goes.

    I will keep experimenting but was hoping one of you experts could point me to exactly where I need to be? :)

    LOL

    I appreciate it.

    I am ultimately planning on printing a device case with it. nice and soft.
