Variable Shore Hardness TPU

ColorFabb varioShore TPU Flexible 3D Printing Filament Canada

varioShore TPU allows users to vary the density of the material by adjusting temperature and material throughput (speed & layerheight). At temperatures between 200 and 250C the materials will start to expand to roughly 1.4-1.6 times its original volume. This means the material can be printed at low flow rates (60-70%), to compensate the active foaming, which in return gives very soft printed parts. Between 190-200C the material can be printed without foaming, resulting in different haptics and harder prints compared to foamed samples.

The base TPU is a 92A material, which will work with most standard extruder set-ups for both Bowden and direct drive systems.

We advise our community to use standard TPU settings as a base setting for developing your own pre-sets. Make sure the distance between nozzle and platform is not to small, especially if the material is being foamed while printing, the pressure will need to be released from the hot-end to prevent clogging and feeder issues.

varioShore TPU:

  1. Variable shorehardness
  2. Active foaming technology
  3. Reduced weight / density

  • VARIABLE SHORE HARDNESS

This material is not limited to one shore hardness, but with the right print settings you can have multiple shore hardnesses – even in one print!

  • REDUCED WEIGHT AND DENSITY

We used our LW-PLA technology in this filament as well to reduce weight significantly. Although the weight reduction of varioShore TPU is not as significant as LW-PLA, the weight of the overall print is noticeable and can make the difference for prints where weight matters.

  • SOFT TOUCH

Prints that need a soft touch, like handle bars for bikes or shoe soles are no problem anymore with varioShore TPU.

20-40C

Cooling fan:
Use the least amount of cooling when maximum foaming is required. For better overhang performance use 50-100% cooling.
