NinjaFlex 3mm
250-260C
0.2mm layer height with an .050 nozzle
20mm/sec max speed

This has to print very slowly, the NinjaFlex doesn't melt very fast, and trying to cram too much of it into the extruder just jams up.
But, if you are patient, you can print some really neat stuff, like the adipose from Dr. Who (2005).

Watch the infill, if you do support only, it squeezes "funny".
Do a light infill for squeezability (<25%), and more (>50%) for a "firmer" feel.

If you are doing repeated flexing, make the walls thicker to handle the inevitable layer separation.
