In today’s video I will take look at two flexible filaments, the eSun eLastic and the Taulman PCTPE. PLA filament is great, but sometimes it’s simply not strong or tough enough for your purpose. You can find the filament here:

There’s a couple of things I forgot to mention in the video! For starters, the eSun eLastic is non-toxic, while the PCTPE fumes are quite dangerous to inhale for a long period of time. I also forgot to mention that the fans should be turned off while printing flexible filaments. The bumber for my radio controlled car was designed using Fusion360.
Two of the most asked questions is “which 3d printer do you recommend” and “where are you from”? I recommend the Anet A8 and the TEVO Tarantula as your first 3D printer. They are both awesome and extremely inexpensive machines. So, where am I from? Well, you guessed it, I’m from Sweden!
