Funkiments Red ABS 3D Printer Filament 1.75mm 1kg

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is the original and very popular 3D printer filament. It is tough, durable and offers good heat and chemical resistance. It is ideal for everyday use in wear-and-tear parts. ABS has a decent amount of flex to it and it tends to bend rather than snap when put under pressure. 
Recommended print settings:
Nozzle temp: 235 - 250 'C
Bed temp: 
90 - 110 'C

"Funkiments are sold as refill rolls on cardboard cores – this means we don’t have to wind every roll of filament onto a plastic spool. Not only does this allow us to sell our products at a highly competitive price, but it’s also better for the environment as less plastic waste is generated!. No fancy packaging, no nonsense, just great filament!

Simply download and print your reusable spool, order our filament from the store and off you go!"

ABS has a glass transition zone (the temperature that the plastic starts to soften at) of 105 'C. This means you will need a heated bed with a temperature between 90 and 110 'C. ABS is a rather strong plastic if printed at the correct temperature to get a great layer bond. It is recommended to be printed with a heated bed and in an enclosed printer.

It is preferred filament over PLA in application where it will be subject to heat or direct sunlight.
