Ninjaflex Filament

We recommend using flexible filament to 3D print the unicorn horn, because it will make it easier to sew and less likely to break or harm anyone. Ninjaflex filament comes in different colors and types. Some 3D printers can handle regular ninjaflex filament, but others (like the Micro M3D printer) work best with semiflex or Cheetah. Either way, this type of filament works best with 3D printer that feature a direct-drive extruder system. 

Ninjaflex Slice Settings

We found the optimal slice settings for ninjaflex to variy but the settings below are a great starting point.

  • 230C Extruder
  • No heated bed / 60c Heated bed
  • 40mm/sec default printing speed
  • No retraction / disabled
  • 50% fan speed

Tweak, Modiy, Design

We put this design together in Autodesk Fusion 360, so it's parametric and easy to remix or make small adjustments. If you're interest in seeing how we designed it, we have a Layer by Layer tutorial that walks through all of the steps.
