Had nothing but grief and blockages since trying to use PVA or Ninja Flex.
how are those materials used, which are also problem materials and which ones work well including flexible and support material. No problems with PLA yet though and whhare good for natural hinges please?

I like to use paperclips for hinges - it can melt through the plastic.

If you want the best printed moving hinges then you really need another pita material = nylon as it is the only one that is "self lubricating", Carbon fiber nylon looks very promising however.

Easy printing = pla but I have personally switched exclusively to PETG - its stronger, less brittle and can tolerate heat and water exposure better and it prints better imho.
