Know Your 3D Printer Filament - ABS

ABS 3D Printer Filament
Tråd3D ABS filament is the perfect combination of quality and affordable 3D Printer filament. The users need not to compromise on the print quality and finish.
ABS filament that is ideal for more experienced users of 3D printers and for educational establishments, small business prototyping, Design Engineers. ABS is stronger than PLA and allows for applications where durability and strength are required.
A heated print bed is recommended when printing with ABS to prevent warping. Usually fulled closed 3D printer or building and enclosure for your 3D printer gets you a clean 3D printed parts.
ABS printed part can finished using an acetone vapor bath for getting a glossy, smooth look. ABS filament is made using the purest raw materials & all of the filament including pigment is produced using premium grade polymers without fillers. Cross-sectional roundness is consistent throughout the whole spool to ensure that a reliable printing experience is achieved over repeated prints. 
 

Features:

  1. ABS material is tough and sturdy
  2. Can be used to print commercial grade parts
  3. High-quality starting material
  4. Diameter tolerances of ± 0.03mm checked with laser monitor
  5. Vacuum packed to prevent moisture 
  6. Smooth surface with even rounding
  7. Good flow properties
  8. Little odor during printing
  9. Compatible with almost all 1.75mm FDM printers
  10. High quality means less waste
  11. Easy post-processing
