ABS Filament Grey Blue – 3 mm

Item No : 222000255

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 .

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.

Temperature:
Print at 210-240 c with a heated bed at 80 c or more.
ABS has a glass transition zone (the temperature that the plastic starts to soften at) of 105 c, and this matters because if you aimed to print something for use in your car, or perhaps a hot-drink coaster you don t want it to start getting soft and drooping. print performance: due to the nature of the plastic, abs tends 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 it s an absolute must to print abs on 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. abs can be printed very quickly and is very forgiving of large and/or rapid retraction settings, it resists stringing so very little retraction is usually necessary.

ABS is great for wearables due to it s resilience strength: abs is a rather strong plastic if printed at sufficient temps to get a great layer bond.
abs has a decent amount of flex to it and it tends to bend rather than snap when put under pressure.
abs is great for bracelets since it flexes fumes: one of the bigger downsides to printing with abs is the strong smell while it prints. while it doesn’t bother most people, some people may have issues with printing abs in confined spaces. i would always recommend printing in a well ventilated room no matter what plastic you chose to print with, but i strongly recommend it with abs. when to use it: 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, wedding rings (mine is black abs). in short it s very good for most objects. abs withstands the high heat of in-car objects and suits 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 it from breezes or even the ambient air temp, you will fight with splitting and cracking. avoid abs if you cannot adequately ventilate the room you re in, the smell might be irritating.

Avoid ABS  if you cannot adequately ventilate the room you re in, the smell might be irritating.
