So there is a filament for every project you have in mind. HobbyKing filaments have a stable melting point, good round shape and most importantly a 0.01mm uniform diameter tolerance for a consistent flow rate.
Flexible filament allows for repeated movement or impact without cracking. Applications include seals, plugs, gaskets, leveling feet and protective applications.
3D printing is a fun and exciting hobby with a wide range of uses from prototyping parts to making toys for the kids. Picking the right filament for your application is very important.

This is a relatively easy to print flexible filament. It's not all that elastic, but the prints are very strong. Excellent for making cell phone cases, for instance. Printed thin, it is quite flexible, so for instance a single wall print is very squishy. At 2-3 walls, I woudn't call it soft anymore, but it has a good amount of give. I'm getting true black high gloss prints.
Just this weekend, I was making cosplay armors props. I was amazed that I could print durable armors with a single outside wall and 5% infill. I didn't want the glossy finish, so I used a rubber spray paint. I'm very pleased with the results. A complete shoulder armor for one side used just 56 grams of filament, including some support structures that I had to use!
Highly recommended as an affordable semi-flex print material.Great value.
I have one complaint about quality: color of the filament is more like dark grey after printing. So if you happen to use two brands, be aware that their colors are not the same even when sold as same color.
Printed part seems to be both flexible and strong (tested as RC car tyres, used on snow and ice).
I approve this filament, if you don't really want that black color for your print.
