ABS, or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, is among the most popular 3D printing materials in the world because it is easy to print and strong. ABS is a durable plastic that can be used for making functional / end use 3D printed parts or prototyping.Best used for making durable parts that need to withstand higher temperatures. In comparison to PLA filament, ABS plastic is less “brittle” and more “ductile.” It can also be post-processed with acetone to provide a glossy finish. When 3D printing with ABS filament, a heated printing surface is recommended, as ABS plastic will contract when cooled leading to warped parts.

ABS filament is available in both 1.75mm and 2.85 mm diameter sizes.

 


[pro Tab]ABS printed parts can be sanded or smoothed using an expert technique with acetone. Advanced users have found that visible layer height on ABS-printed items can be significantly reduced with an acetone vapor bath. This is a process in which the ABS print is exposed to acetone vapor for a period of time. This technique allows users to have smooth and glossy ABS parts. The acetone vapor-treated parts may be strengthened when the printed layers together bind together. ABS has a glass transition zone (the temperature that the plastic starts to soften at) of 105º, 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, unless you are aiming for a droopy print.
Due to the nature of the plastic, ABS tends to be very easy to print with from a hot-end point of view – as in 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 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 withstands the high heat of in-car objects and suits the ruggedness needed in phone cases.
  • 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. [/pro Tab]
