colorFabb varioShore TPU allows users to vary the density of the material by adjusting temperature and material throughput (speed & layer height). At temperatures between 200°C and 250 °C 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 °C – 200 °C 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.
