TPE and TPU flexible filaments
TPE and TPU are flexible materials that combine flexibility and strength. In 3D printing, they are used when the resulting product must be strong and flexible at the same time.
The main difference between the two filaments is flexibility. TPE is softer and more flexible, but it is more difficult to print with due to its poor adhesion to the printing pad.
