Alittle bit of a learning curve
Reviewed in the United States on December 27, 2018
I ordered the red TPU for Christmas along with some third party PLA for my new Ender 3, I received my Ender Christmas eve before work and was able to fire it up for a test print, I ended up of course using the free sample of pla with no errors after leveling the bed, Then started to use the SAINSMART Red TPU, it was disasterific.
The TPU clogged up my first nozzle leading me to youtube to learn what I did wrong, It needed drasticly different heat and speed settings. So I changed to my backup nozzle while attempting to clean the first, I finally managed one single print, A redo of my pla test model but in the tpu, This was my one and only success using half a roll of TPU.
This may not be a bad product, But I will not be buying TPU again in the near future. Beginners such as myself should stay in the PLA side of the pool. My only regret is not realizing the difference in TPU and PLA before I made the purchase.
