Unlike the waistband in your favorite sweatpants that's losing its elasticity, elastic parts won't fail you. Whether squeezed, bent, twisted, or crushed, elastic parts will immediately begin to take their original printed shape.
Elastic filament also has incredible heat resistance and can withstand temperatures up to 400 degrees (F). It also cools faster than other 3D printing materials.
This vacuum head adaptor is currently being used by one of our customers on an assembly line. Elastic filament is perfect for this type of part, providing safety for workers (no sharp edges on which to get cut). It's also an excellent choice because poses no risk of damaging whatever items it picks up and moves.
