Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is any of a class of polyurethane plastics with many useful properties, including elasticity, transparency, and resistance to oil, grease and abrasion. TPE and TPU have very similar properties. Our TPU has more elastic properties, and TPE has more flexibility.
TPU is an excellent printing material for those seeking flexible results. TPU's consistency regular testing and improvements have made it one of the best flexible 3D printing materials.
Yields excellent print result which holds its structure. Won't discolour while stretched. 1.75/2.85mm is compatible with most 3D printers with a direct drive extruder including the Zortrax M200 and Flashforge printers. 2.85mm is compatible with most printers with a bowden extruder including Ultimakers and Delta machines.

Hello, I'm looking at the tpu filament for a certain application, I need to build square platforms of around 10 mm in width and varying in height that can compress around 1 to 2 mm, does the tpu filament allow for elastic compression or just flex?
TPU can be compressed without breaking. It can compress more or less based on the infill of the printed part.
