ABS Filament

ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is a very common plastic used in 3D printing. Altough not as easy to print as PLA ABS offers some clear advantages over PLA, one being strength and another being the ease with which an ABS printed object can be processed/finished after the object is printed.

Advantages of ABS Filament

  • Final prints are very hard
  • Higher melting point than PLA
  • Long lifespan
  • Printed objects can be processed/finished

Disadvantages

  • Unpleasant odur during printing
  • Is prone to warping
