ABS is also called Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, which is the third commonly used wire after PLA and PETG. In terms of material properties, it is actually better than PLA. Although it is difficult to print, it has high strength. Products made of ABS have durability and high temperature resistance. When printing, pay attention to the printing temperature, warpage during cooling and unpleasant odor (organic volatile substances such as styrene). Therefore, the heating backplane must be used for 3D printing.
It is often used in the production of household and consumer products, including Lego and bicycle helmets!
ABS plastic is hard when it is dry
The magical chemical reaction that occurs when ABS contacts acetone
Immerse the printed model in acetone for a small time to remove the roughness of the surface and make the model very smooth.
Use difficulty: medium
Printing temperature: 210 ° C - 250 ° C
Hot bed temperature: 80 ° C - 110 ° C
Soluble: esters, ketones and acetone
When printing on a printing platform that has not been heated, edge warping often occurs, especially when printing large models. When ABS is heated, the material will release an unpleasant smell. ABS consumables can be recycled.
