  • UV Stable
  • Water tight and stable for underwater applications
  • Styrene-free
  • BPA Free
  • FDA Compliant for Food contact
  • 1KG Spool (2.20lbs)
  • (Dimensional Accuracy +/- 0.05mm)
  • Low to NO odor
  • Near zero warp-age or shrinkage
  • Vacuumed Sealed With Desiccant
  • Low moisture absorption 
  • Sourced and Manufactured in the USA
  • Affordable - we make it, you save big!! 
  • Spool Diameter: 7.94" - Spool Width: 2.50" - Spool Hub Hole Diameter: 2"
Maker Flex series of 3D printing filaments are a polyester-based thermoplastic elastomer (TPEE). Maker Flex is an engineering elastomer combining the properties of rubbers and engineering plastics, thus bridging the gap between these classes of material. It comes closest to engineering plastics among thermoplastic elastomer and can be processed to a wide variety of products. 
To manufacture high quality products, TPEE is used in place of other elastomer such as thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), with its high performance and process-ability.

MAKE Magazine comes out to MakerGeeks.com to talk shop...
MakerGeeks is very pleased to bring you an affordable alternative to the the NinjaFlex 3D printer filaments or other expensive flexible 3D filaments that are often made offshore in China - Our Maker FlexFlexible filament is based on the exact same resin properties however since we can have our resins custom made to order with our chemical company partnership we can bring you this exact same engineering 3D printer filament for a fraction of the cost; and is made right here in the USA at our Springfield, MO plant putting hardworking honest American manufacturers to work!! 
So; lets talk about price.... Maker Filament Maker Flex Flexible PLA is only $39.55 for 1KG/ 2.2lbs - Think about that price for a second... some retailers charge you $49 to $59 for 1/2kg of their flexible 3D filament and you know what... it's all the same stuff; matter of fact we manufacturer a lot of those same brands for them right here at MakerGeeks as that's a big part of our business, private labeling (white labeling) for other large US based 3D filament and 3D printer companies. So why pay more... cut out the middle man and the fancy packaging and go direct with Maker Geeks and the Maker Filament brand!
As you might know Maker Geeks.com is one, if not the only 3D Printer Retailer in the USA that also makes all it's own filament in house; so we have a lot of flexibility on pricing and the ability to still give you second to none quality (click here to see our process and read about what we are doing here in Springfield, MO) we also source everything from our color to our resin to our spools to even the vacuum seal bags all inside the USA so when we say it's Made in America it is... from top to bottom! 
Maker Filament 3D Printer Filament has been and continues to be used daily here at MakerGeeks HQ for all our 3D printing plus we have a great network of large scale industrial users that order and print with 100's of KG of our filament each week so we are always getting nearly real-time feed back from them as well as our 1,000's of Makers like you! Think of Maker Filament more like YOUR Filament... it's your requests, feedback and input that shape the brand and help us to make the best 3D Printer Filament on the market today!

Maker Filament Maker Flex Flexible 3D Printer Filament works great with: 
  • Ultimaker
  • PrintrBot
  • RepRap (Mendel, Huxley, Prusa, Kossel, Rostock)
  • Solidoodle
  • MakerBot (Replicator, Replicator 2, Replicator 2X)
  • FlashForge
  • Wanhao (Duplicator 4, 4X, 4S, 5S, 5S Mini, i3)
  • Leapfrog
  • UP! Plus, Up! Mini
  • and many, many more... basically if it's a 3D Printer; Maker Filament will work in it!! ;)

Happy Monday to you... hope you are doing great today; wanted to share something that was on my heart this morning about MakerGeeks and what’s going on and what the next steps are for us.

Almost 3 years ago we started selling 3D Printer filament(all of it from China) and over the next 2 years saw a booming business come out of those items; reselling filaments from China, Germany and the Netherlands. About a year and a half ago we started with a single extruder and a dream to start making 3D printer filament in bulk scale here on US soil… back then I thought that 1 extruder and me working part time would make more filament than I could sell in a life-time. Well, within just a few months we had bought another extrusion line and hired our first full time operator just to keep up with demand.

Now, surly we would have enough filament to last a life-time; NOPE… in just a few more months we added another extrusion line and lots and lots of overtime and weekends. Now we…
