Our ABS filament helps to make 3D printing easier with its high quality properties and reliability. These fibrous thermoplastic filaments are easy to print with, they extrude at a temperature of 230°C and a heated bed of 60°C. Printing with ABS filament provides excellent surface adhesion, seamless transitions, bridges and fills for superior stiffness, and durability. Our manufacturing processes also ensure that the filament has undergone a thorough inspection, ensuring you only get top quality products. Furthermore, ABS filament is a versatile, easy to use ABS plastic filament that provides reliable performance at a great price. The benefits that 3D printing enables make this ABS a fantastic value for the money
ABS Filament Printing Tips
The printing temperature of ABS is between 210 and 240°C. The use of a heated print bed of approximately 80°C is strongly recommended. Preferably a closed 3D printer, or in a draft-free, warm room. This reduces the chance that the ABS filament cools and shrinks too quickly.
Objects printed with ABS filament are stronger, more flexible and more durable than objects made of PLA. This makes ABS a much better choice for some projects. Although printing is a bit more difficult. ABS can be post-processed with acetone. This allows the printed object to be smoothed. ABS filament is suitable for making, for example, phone cases, tool handles and mechanical parts. The well-known LEGO blocks, for example, are also made of ABS.
What is ABS?
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a petroleum-based plastic that is durable, lightweight and highly versatile. ABS plastic is used in various industries to make appliances, toys, equipment, pipes and more. Maker Geeks PLA (Polylactic Acid) plastic filament for 3D printing is made in the USA from high quality synthetic resin. PLA is almost odorless when melted and is an incredibly popular filament used by beginners and experienced natives alike. This is because it is easy to print with and produces excellent quality prints that are less prone to warping than other plastics such as our ABS filament products. We back our filaments with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so you can get high quality products at low prices without risk! When ABS printer filament is used to 3D printing filament, it produces strong, durable materials with excellent thermal resistance. Furthermore, ABS is a durable and tough 3D printing material best suited for applications where flexibility, durability, resistance to higher temperatures and impact resistance are required. It is stronger and harder than PLA and also has better heat resistance (up to 110°C on heated beds). It performs well even at high temperatures - so it's ideal for things like protective cases that need to be able to take a beating. ABS prints can also be smoothed out by dissolving the layers in acetone.
The properties of ABS filament
ABS filament is perfect for 3D printing of parts that do not need to be flexible. Its stiffness and hardness make it ideal for making prototypes that require a good surface finish, as well as parts that will be painted or stained. Furthermore, ABS filament is also heat and water resistant. ABS plastic is known for its thick strong feel, and can be machined very well compared to PLA. In addition, ABS has very good thermal properties, making it very suitable for parts such as brackets and handles. This makes it a good candidate for a number of different functional parts in your design. The ABS filaments have excellent mechanical properties, it is very strong and tough. It has a glass transition temperature of 135-140°C. In daily use it has excellent chemical resistance; it survives immersion in concentrated sulfuric acid for more than 10 minutes.
