Item no: 0201309 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 .
due to the nature of the plastic, abs tend to be very easy to print with from a hot-end point of view it ll extrude beautifully from most hot-ends without fear of jamming or clogging.
however, it s a little more difficult to deal with once it has been extruded since it loves to shrink as it cools. the shrinkage can cause issues with the part lifting from the bed, or the layers cracking or splitting as the height of the object increases. for this reason s an absolute must to print abson a heated bed, and preferably within an enclosed-case printer. at the very least, print in a room that s not too cold and one that is without drafts which might accelerate the cooling and therefore the shrinkage.
