Weight: 1 kg abs is a strong plastic with mild flexibility (compared to pla). the flexibility of abs makes creating interlocking pieces or pin connected pieces easier to work with. it is easily sanded and machined. notably, abs is soluble in acetone allowing one to weld parts together with a drop or two, or smooth and create high gloss by brushing or dipping full pieces in acetone. compared to pla, it is much easier to recycle abs. its strength, flexibility, machinability, and higher temperature resistance make it often a preferred plastic by engineers and those with mechanical uses in mind. its strength, flexibility, machinability, and higher temperature resistance make it often a preferred plastic for engineers, and professional applications. the hot plastic smell deter some as does the plastics petroleum based origin. heated print bed required.
objects that might be dropped, put in hot environments, or used in a rough manner are perfect uses for abs.
think of knife handles, car phone mounts, phone cases, toys, and wedding rings (mine is black abs). in short, it s very good for most objects.
abs withstand the high heat of in-car objects and suit the ruggedness needed in phone cases when not to use it: if you don’t have a heated bed, forget about it. if you want to print some large objects and don t have a way of protecting them from breezes or even the ambient air temp, you will fight with splitting and cracking. avoid as if you cannot adequately ventilate the room you’re in, the smell might be irritating.
