Why pick this filament?
Stock up with 500g of black ABS filament so you’ve always got enough for medium to large scale projects.
ABS is ideal for robust and strong 3D printed parts. With a higher melting point ABS is great for prints stored in warmer areas as there’s less chance of warping. With more of a bend than PLA, ABS can also give you a more robust and flexible print.
The alternative, PLA is a bio-degradable plant based filament. It has a lower melting point than ABS so it does not require a heated bed. PLA sticks better to a range of surfaces including metal, glass and acrylic.
Check your printer for its filament compatibilitiesStoring my filament when not in use
All filaments work better when they are stored in a dry and dust free environment as moisture can create problems with printing and reduce the lifespan of the filament. To protect you filament it is best to store it in a sealed container or bag with an added sachet of silica gel to ensure when you come to use, or reuse it, you’ll have the best quality print every time.
