There are quite a range of unique types of 3D Printing Filament on the market with strange and exciting properties and characteristics, although none are quite and fun as our 1kg spools of eSUN 1.75mm Clear eFlex TPU. This filament, although designed with flexibility in mind, features a hardness rating of 95 Shore A, which is a lot harder than typical “Flexible” filaments. However, this level of hardness means that, instead of being flexible like the sole of a flip-flop, the flexibility is more focused on adding impact resistance and enhanced durability that PLA Filaments simply can’t achieve.

This eFlex TPU is clear and transparent and is often regarded as a “Semi-Flexible” filament. However, despite this uniqueness, eSUN eFlex prints at similar specifications to Standard PLA Filament. Just remember that with flexible filaments you need to apply slightly higher heat than usual, while running the print at a lower speed than most other 3D Filaments. This will prevent the filament from pulling off of the lower layers while printing, resulting in great prints that are both durable and flexible.

While typical TPE is typically designed with a high elongation and low hardness for high flexibility, this semi-flex TPU95A Filament is designed for engineering applications rather than aesthetics, with this particular shore hardness commonly being used for roller skates and skateboard wheels. And finally, while you may certainly be able to print and polish this filament to a fine aesthetic finish, it won’t be able to reach the same level of beauty when compared to other filaments like the eSUN eSilk Filaments.

Typical Applications for eSUN Clear eFlex TPU Filament:

With the unique properties of eSUN eFlex, this filament is often used for very unique applications, such as making stretchable or bendable toys, flexible fashion accessories or even the soles of shoes.

Projects that utilise this filament include:

  • Printing wheels or drive belts for small robots and robotics projects.
  • Designing unique phone cases that offer protection while maintaining a soft and flexible feel.
  • Building an entire bikini like Naomi “SexyCyborg” Wu – who then modelled it and successfully tested it in water.

Whether you want to print toys, fashion accessories or any other objects that can benefit from being flexible, there are few other filaments that can achieve such a high quality print with all of these fantastic characteristics.

Shenzhen eSUN Industrial Co., Ltd was established in 2002 in Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and has rapidly become one of the leading international suppliers of 3D Printing Filament. They specialise in research, development and production of degradable polymer materials, and have grown their catalogue of filaments to include PLA, ABS, PC, PVA, and a wide range of other polymers and copolymers.


Their list of exclusive filament formulas include unique materials like wood, aluminium, bronze and other materials to create highly specialised filaments that can stretch, bend, be moulded or otherwise behave in very unique ways. Their filaments are also commonly characterised by their absolutely round shape, extremely low diameter tolerance, uniform colours and impressively stable melting points. These characteristics, in combination with their long-term insistent policy of “Best Quality, Reasonable Price” has garnered them a large share of the market, with their reputation commonly preceding them within knowledgeable online and offline 3D Printing communities.


eSUN’s popularity in the industry has also helped to produce sustainable partnerships with many internationally famous 3D Printer manufacturers and distributors, with DIYElectronics having sole distributorship rights to provide their 3D Printing Filaments to South Africa and neighbouring African countries.
