Zak's Picks and Tricks // Ninja Flex Drive Block

Hi Sam, Yes it is possible to print flexible filament using your stock drive block, however, it is significantly more difficult to properly load the filament as it will often miss the exit hole or get tangled. I hope this answered your question! - Zak
