This 3D printer filament is compatible with the Velleman K8200 3D Printer (Order Code <N82QG
>). The filament is 3mm ABS - a flexible plastic that can be used in higher temperatures. The spool is 200mm in diameter, 70mm high and has a 54mm diameter spool hole to fit onto your 3D printer. This filament can be used with a variety of 3D printers that take 3mm ABS (check your printer for compatibility). Why pick this filament?
1kg of black filament (ABS3B1) for medium to large scale projects so you don’t risk running out halfway through.
ABS is a better material to use if you are using or storing your printed parts in areas that get close to 105°C as it has a much lower chance of warping than PLA. There is also more flexibility in an ABS print and pieces can be easily sanded and machined.
The alternative, PLA, has a lower melting point and is more susceptible to warping at higher temperatures. PLA is a bio-degradable plastic, made from renewable sources, and as it is derived from sugar. It gives off a semi-sweet smell and can be better for sharper detailed prints.
Check your printer for its filament compatibilities How should I store 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 your filament, it is best to store it in a sealed container or bag with an added sachet of silica gel. This will ensure that when you come to use or reuse it, you’ll have the best quality print every time.
