Flexible 3D Filament (1.75mm)
Flexible Material are similar to PLA, but usually made out of TPE or TPU. The advantage of using these filaments for 3D printing is they allow for the creation of deformable objects, widely used in the fashion industry.
Generally, these flexible filaments have the same printing characteristics as PLA, though they come in a variety of ranges based on their stiffness. It is worth finding out which type of extruder is best suited to the material to avoid jams when 3D printing.

Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) has both plastic and elastic properties. Parts made with TPE are extremely elastic and can be stretched up to twice their original length before returning to their original form when released.
A heated platform isn’t needed but if you choose to use one make sure to keep the temperature low. TPE has great layer adhesion as well as good UV weather resistance, allowing you to print objects that will be used outdoors.
