Description

Hi guys!!
Sorry for waiting but now all is ready, recreus.com is open.

Here I show one of thousand possibilities of filaflex "make you own sneakers". It has been created with a prusa I3 mod (SNEAKERBOT) with a large working space (Y axis) and glass bed without heated bed, filaflex doesn´t need it.

Thanks, hope you like!!

Shame the files are blocked. Does anyone know the story behind that, of whether the files are elsewhere?

This is awesome. I can see printing reinforcement pieces from other materials to create something that has say a harder sole. Too cool!

Has anyone had success printing this filament in a Replicator 2x? I've been unsuccessful with Makerbot's flexible filament and Ninjaflex on the 2x...

Hi, I am a technical dummy. I have no idea what is 1.75mm referring to. All I want to know is: is this good for the Makerbot Replicator 2?

Does the filament have a grippy texture after printed? or is it slippery?

evamvid on Nov 28, 2013 said:

Are the shoes tied with the filament?

gathem on Nov 6, 2013 said:

Questions about this material:
Is there any chemical which can be used as a solvent (like acetone vapor is to ABS) so it can be melted/welded?
How does it respond to sanding?
How do supports work with this filament?

Question about the shoes: Would you describe the shoes as being slippery?

Recreus on Nov 6, 2013 said:

Hello Gathem
Filaflex is resistant to acetone and solvents, you can sand it easily and the support with a cutter you can remove it without problems.
The shoes has High grid!!

Do you have any easy suggestions for helping me increase my build plate size to accommodate the shoe print for my I3 Prusa?

Rico on Oct 26, 2013 said:

Have you attempted to combine materials. A PLA/Elastic mix on a dual extruder setup, for example?

evamvid on Oct 18, 2013 said:

Can you ship to the US?

Have you tried using this to print belts?

Recreus on Oct 20, 2013 said:

Yes Evamvid we ship to US and we have print watch belts and shoe belt without problems, bracelets etc.
Thanks

josephrueter on Sep 29, 2013 said:

1.75 and it's on the way to my house.

skipster04 on Oct 12, 2013 said:

I second that!

LiquidBeef on Sep 28, 2013 said:

Now we're getting somewhere! This would be pretty ideal for prosthetic limbs. Also interested in a 1.75mm..

Has anyone put a 3.0 in a Makerbot?

coelestinian on Sep 27, 2013 said:

Is that a Budashnozzle you're using?

Recreus on Sep 28, 2013 said:

Yes, we use budasnozzle, Jhead nozzle, and poland nozzle.

Denshine on Sep 23, 2013 said:

Il buy every colour to if thers a 1.75 filament. I have to have this!!!

badBrick on Sep 23, 2013 said:

Can you post some specs of your printer? In the beginning of anther build and would love to make sure its compatible.
thx.

JuliaDee on Sep 22, 2013 said:

Please, please, please, make this available in 1.75mm!!! I will buy every damn color, I promise.

Akeldema on Sep 22, 2013 said:

What is the tearout strength of the shoelace holes like? Can it withstand being laced snugly and vigorous activity like football/rugby? Or would they be more suited to leiurely walks through the park?
Regardless, this is a really cool thing!

jdavis on Sep 22, 2013 said:

Holy Cow!! This just blew my mind. I can't wait until the 1.75mm is available.

Nevil_Clavain on Sep 21, 2013 said:

Hey can you give us some details like filament size, printer compatibility, and where to buy?

maxumx on Sep 21, 2013 said:

How does this filament work inside a bowden system? i wonder if it would be to flexible to feed properly. interesting stuff none the less.

cyclone on Sep 22, 2013 said:

Their website says no.

Fido on Sep 21, 2013 said:

Is this filament MK5 extruder compatible? (delrin plunger)

Recreus on Sep 21, 2013 said:

Hi Anthony
Size is 8, europen size 42
285mm lenght and 98mm width.
If you want to rescale you have to plus or deduct.
6.6mm length.
4.5mm width.

For example:
42 size is 285mm if I want 41 size.

rescale to:
Lenght=285-6.6=278.4mm
Widht= 98.8-4.5=94.3mm

Hope I help you ;)
