Great ABS filament White 3 mm 1000 g for 3D printers. eSun filament gives you an affordable material with consistent quality.
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) filament has been in use for 3D printing for a long time. It used to be the most popular 3D print material, but due to the properties of ABS including high shrinkage it's hard to work with. Compared to other materials ABS still has some advantages including that its gasoline resistant, non-translucent and a soft bendable thermoplastic. Also compared to PLA it has a much higher glass transition point. ABS is an oil based product, making it less environmentally friendly than PLA is, and while printing it tends to give a bad chemical smell, so you probably want to use this in well ventilated conditions.
This filament will require more effort to print well. If you are using ABS to print small strong parts, you may get away with just using 3DLAC on a 65-80 degrees heated bed. Kapton tape is another product where ABS will print on, but it will require a higher temperatures around 110 degrees. For extruding the filament we recommend a temperature of 245 degrees, although it may extrude as low as 220 degrees, the layer bonding won't be as strong. For larger prints you should look into PETG filament first, without a heated chamber you will not be able to print this material without warping and cracking.
The Real ABS comes in many different colors directly from stock. For larger quantities and custom batches, feel free to contact our sales department.
PLA can print well on an unheated surface using Blue Painters or Kapton tape, and most 3D print stickers. For ease and convenience, we recommend using spray such as 3DLAC on a glass bed. A low bed temperature between 50 - 60 degrees further reduces the chance of warping and makes final print removal easier once the print surface has cooled.
