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 .
This bright neon green wanhao abs is custom-extruded for us and ranks as our all-time brightest Color. it has a great uv reactive ingredient so in sunlight this stuff is radiant, like the nuclear fuel homer is always mishandling at the power plant. bright neon green, and even brighter and more popping under a uv or black light. looks cool under our blue led stripes as well!

ABSis a strong plastic with mild flexibility (compared topla ). the flexibility of abs makes creatinginterlocking piecesor pin connected pieces easier to work with. it is easily sanded and machined. notably,abs is soluble in acetoneallowing 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 byengineers and those with mechanical usesin mind. its strength, flexibility, machinability, and higher temperature resistance make it often a preferred plastic for engineers, andprofessional applications . the hot plastic smell deter some as doesthe plastics petroleum based origin . heated print bed required.
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 startgetting soft and drooping.
due to the nature of the plastic, abs tends to be very easy toprint with from a hot-end point of viewit ll extrude beautifully from most hot-ends without fear of ja mming 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 reasonit 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.
abs can be printedvery quickly and is very forgiving of large and/or rapid retraction settings, it resists stringing sovery 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 andit tends to bend rather than snap when put under pressure .
abs is great for bracelets since it flexes fumes:
one of the bigger downsides toprinting with absis 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 reco mmend printing in a well ventilated room no matter whatplastic you chose to print with , but i strongly reco mmend it with abs.
when to use it:
objects that might be dropped, put in hot environments or used in arough 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 toprint some large objectsand don t have a way of protecting it frombreezes or even the ambient air temp , you will fight withsplitting and cracking . avoid abs if you cannot adequately ventilate the room you re in,the smell might be irritating .
