ABS(Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) products are highly durable and has capacity to withstand high temperatures. It is industrial grade plastic and highly used filament.
For printing in ABS Filament Set the bed temperature to 110 degrees Celcius. Also, think about using Kapton (blue) on your glass build plate. If you still have problems with the first layer adhesion of your ABS filament, you should use a raft.
Set the nozzle temperature to 230 degrees and work your way from there.
If you see a lot of plastic strings between separate parts and the printer oozes material, lower the temperature by 5 degrees.
If the filament doesn’t stick, the parts aren’t sturdy or the surfaces have a rough feel, increase the temperature by 5 degrees.
- Great mechanical properties: The material is known to be strong, tough and durable. It is also forgiving to scratches, offers good resistance to heat and everyday chemicals. It can endure heat, pressure and stress like no other home 3D printer material, making it a great choice for „wear and tear“ prints. You can try this out yourself: If you move a strain of ABS filament, will distort and bend before breaking.
- Great results: It’s quite forgiving, as long as you print with the right settings and a proper temperature management. You can even achieve overhangs of around 45 degrees. If the print succeeds, the results are very convincing.
- Easy to process: Most makers like the material because you can process its surfaces with acetone, glue parts and even file off some material. Lastly, it can be easily painted with acrylic colors.
