With Makerbot Flexible filament you can print your model, then heat it and bend the model (like the fingers in the picture). Then once its cooled, it will set in position
MakerBot Flexible Filament adheres well to acrylic; it doesnt adhere well to painters tape and glass. A level build plate is especially important so be sure your build plate is level, clean and oil-free before printing.
Slice your design file in MakerWare 2.3.0 using the MakerBot Flexible Filament material profile.
To preserve the filament form while spooled, store MakerBot Flexible Filament in a cool area away from heat sources.
SPECIAL NOTES FOR LOADING AND UNLOADING
MakerBot Flexible Filament flows and melts at significantly lower temperatures than MakerBot PLA Filament. To avoid problems with the filament melting outside the extruder nozzle, it is important to load and unload the MakerBot Flexible Filament at a lower temperature.
IMPORTANT: Any time MakerBot Flexible Filament is loaded or unloaded and there is not any prior MakerBot PLA Filament to be purged, you must set the Change Filament temperature to 120 °C.
When switching between filaments, please follow these important steps:
From: MakerBot PLA Filament To: MakerBot Flexible Filament
Follow the normal Change Filament procedure to load the MakerBot Flexible Filament. To prevent overheating of the MakerBot Flexible Filament inside the extruder, stop the procedure as soon as the previous MakerBot PLA Filament is no longer present
From: MakerBot Flexible Filament To: MakerBot PLA Filament
Using the MakerBot Replicator 2 display console, reduce the Change Filament target temperature to 120 °C and unload the MakerBot Flexible Filament.
Then, to load MakerBot PLA Filament, increase the temperature to 230°C and load the filament.
