Red – ABS 2.85 – Devil Design
ABS or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a common petroleum based thermoplastic polymer. The most important mechanical properties of ABS are impact resistance and toughness. A very prominent use of ABS is the LEGO bricks.
When printing with ABS good ventilation is recommended.
Warping and lift-off can be a problem and so, a good first layer is essential to a successful end result. Make sure the build platform is properly calibrated and heated. Preferably automatically calibrated, minimizing the risk of a human mistake. The best surface for printing ABS material without any adhesives is a PEI build plate. After the 3D print is finished and the cooling process has ended, the object can be removed from the printing surface quite easily, resulting in a bottom surface that is clean and smooth.
The filament is wound on a spool, vacuum packed with a moisture absorber. The spool contains 1 kg of net material.
Weight of filament: 1kg
Diameter of the spool: 200 mm
Width of spool: 70 mm
Diameter of mounting hole: 52 mm
