Recommendations for settings for Overture TPU using M3S+ please

Just ordered a roll of Overture TPU and I'm hoping someone will share there profile for same. I've had good luck with PLA and PETG, but never tried flex before.

A shared profile and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you very much! Ted

RE: Recommendations for settings for Overture TPU using M3S+ please

I just finished printing two spools of Overture TPU. I started with the Generic Flex model but changed bed temperature to 60 and nozzle temperature to 230, Maximum Volumetric Speed to 1.5 (kudos to @swiss_cheese). Everything else defaults.

The key is to loosen the idler screw to the point that it always falls out. I did that by completely removing it, then screwing it back in until it just catches in the nut.

I also printed everything from a dry box. Made a big difference.

 

EDIT:  I initially had a lot of extraneous stringing when I tried to print multiple copies on one sheet. The fix was to choose "sequential printing" and to carefully arrange the models on the print bed (again, kudos to @swiss_cheese, who reminded me of the sequential printing option I had totally forgotten).

Do you recommend a textured sheet? I have both textured and smooth...

Thanks, Ted

I used the satin sheet. Don't know about the textured sheet but for the smooth I would put glue stick on, as a separating agent. Check out https://help.prusa3d.com/en/article/flexible-steel-sheets-guidepost_2195

The Textured and Satin are equally good for TPU and Fuchsr is spot on about using glue or some kind of separator on Smooth PEI.
