Flexible-X use cases
Liqcreate Flexible-X is perfect for the manufacturing of soft touch, flexible and elastic parts up to 160% elongation.
Very nice and interesting product. Even if I had many difficulties to print the Flexible-X on my Elegoo Saturn. Thanks to Liqcreate I’ve been able to finally print my product. Once you found the right settings life is better but until that it’s quit a long ordeal. Personally I couldn’t have found the right settings by myself, I needed help from the support which I’ve received!! Thanks again Liqcreate for all the help and efforts!

This resin has truly great spring properties. It bounces like a spring and returns to original shape instantly. You can easily quite realistically simulate silicone or TPE parts, even tiny ones. It also has only mild oddor. Resin comes in durable aluminum bottle with a double closure. Recommend for plastic engineering.
It has great properties, but one major flaw… it stays sticky no matter what I do. I have followed the recommended post processing several times, all with the same result… it still feels tacky.
thank you for your message and too bad to hear that you are having issues with stickyness.
there are a few tips and tricks to get rid of the stickyness, these are listed here: https://www.liqcreate.com/supportarticles/instructions-3dprinted-flexible-resin/
When following the protocol, the parts should come out nicely. if you are still having issues, please reach out to us at email@example.com and our technical team will help
