LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NinjaTek, a division of Fenner Drives and makers of the popular line of NinjaFlex and SemiFlex 3D printing filaments, today announced the upcoming launch of two new 3D printing materials in the first quarter of 2016.


Cheetah™ filament is a high-performance flexible polyurethane material, which prints across all printer types utilizing ABS settings. Key benefits are faster print speed than other flexible products (up to 60 mm/second), excellent interlayer adhesion and limited retraction. Key uses are parts with a high level of detail -- gaskets, grips, hinges, seals, sleeves or snap-fit parts. Now these parts can be produced more quickly and with fewer poor prints, saving the user time and money. Cheetah filament will be available for purchase in late January 2016.

NinjaTeks Armadillo™ filament is a high-performance rigid material best described as "tough and rugged." Armadillo filament possesses excellent durability under stress from external sources and is resistant to greases, oils and many other industrial chemicals. Printability is a key benefit, with excellent bridging capabilities and virtually no warping issues. Armadillo filament is perfect for printing functional parts requiring toughness and impact resistance, including braces, brackets, fasteners, gears, guides, protective covers and splints. Product will be available in early February 2016.
