Printing Successfully with TPU

dburumdburum Posts: 6Member
I finally got my JGAurora Magic to successfully and reliably print TPU.  I designed and built a replacement extruder - you can find it here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3909015.  It forces the TPU filament to enter the plastic tube to the nozzle.  It's a little trickier to thread, but not too bad, so it can also be used for PLA and other filaments.  No need to go back and forth.  The other big trick appears to be reducing the flow to 90%, to avoid pressure buildup in the nozzle.  I print TPU hot (225 deg. nozzle, 60 deg. bed) at 30 mm/sec for all speed settings (except travel speeds).  TPU is a great material and a nice complement to PLA, due to its high flexibility.
