TPC (Thermoplastic Polyurethane, similar to TPU) is a fun an exciting filament that is flexible and gives the user endless possibilities for creative and real-world uses. TPC allows a user to print an object, bend and flex the object, and then have it go back to its original printed shape. TPC offers great elongation properties as it can stretch and bend, and durability in real world applications (i.e. a smartphone case). While there are numerous TPC polymers available, we believe we have found the best one for both ease of 3D Printing and elasticity.
Note* Our TPC polymer is not recommended for Bowden extruders. If you have clogs, please lower your print speed and retraction settings - TPC is a difficult polymer to successfully print for new users.
