3DGence ABS is a high-quality ABS filament which is compatible with most 3D printers with a heated build plate. Although it is specially engineered to be printed by 3DGence 3D printers, it also prints perfectly on similar machines, making it a good third-party alternative to some of the more expensive options out there.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is the most widely used plastic in engineering because it’s easy to work with and process. It is durable, impact-resistant, and has moderate flexural strength so when printed thin it doesn’t snap easily.
You can use 3DGence ABS to make enclosures, housings, buttons, switches, snap-fits, packaging, tubes, plates and more. ABS is strong and sturdy, which is why it is used to make LEGO® and the switchgear in most cars.
You can also pair 3DGence ABS with 3DGence ESM-10, a solvent-soluble support material. This combination enables you to print complex geometries, although your printer will need to have a dual extrusion system to do so.
3DGence recommends that for the best results, you should print their ABS using a printer with a heated build chamber (in addition to a heated build plate). This is so each individual layer bonds sufficiently with the last.
Please note that ABS is not food safe, nor is it biodegradable. If you want a food safe plastic, check out 3DGence PC (polycarbonate).
