SainSmart TPU gains popularity among 3D Printing community for its balance of rigidity and flexibility. In
addition, with a 95A Shore Hardness and improved bed adhesion, it is easier to print even with a stock
elementary 3D Printer like the Creality Ender 3. SainSmart TPU will not disappoint if you are looking for
flexible filament. From drone parts, phone cases, to small toys, all can be printed with ease.
A consistent and slow feed rate is key to successful printing with TPU.
As a hygroscopic material, TPU absorbs moisture easily, drying the filament before
printing allows for a smooth finish.
Printing TPU Filament with a direct drive extruder is recommended, though it is possible
to print with a Bowden extruder, it requires more tweaking.
New Product Design
Our TPU Filaments will be greeting you with its brand
new look starting from Early March, 2021. This transition to new packaging will occur over a
number of months. During this transitional period, the filaments you received may contain a
mixture of current and new packaging. There are no major changes to these products, and the
print quality remains the same.
Electrifying & Intense
SainSmart TPU filament is renowned for its high quality and ease of use, offering you flexible
and strong parts with consistency and smooth finish.
It is compatible with most FDM printers on the market that use 1.75 mm filament, including
Creality, Prusa i3, Monoprice MakerSelect & Qidi, and other RepRap printers.
With a 95A Shore Hardness, SainSmart TPU
Filament maintains a carefully balance between rigidity and flexiblity, making
it one of the easiest flexible filament to work with.
SainSmart TPU Filament takes advantage of
advanced quality control measures to achieve dimensional accuracy and
consistency, enabling smooth extrusion.
Improved Layer Adhesion
SainSmart TPU Filament comes with improved
layer adhesion, zero bubbles and less warping, all of them contribute to the
smooth result of your prints.
Printing profiles are available for
popular 3d printers like the Creality Ender-3 series, SainSmart Coreception, and
Prusa i3 MK3. Download and start your printing right away. (Click

Do not over extrude filament when loading. As soon as the filament starts protruding from the
stop. Loading any faster will cause the filament to get caught in extruder gear.
Feed the filament directly to the extruder, and not through the feeder tube. This reduces back
in the filament as well as drag, ensuring proper feeding.
