• High quality black ABS filament
• Will work with 3D printers which support 1.75mm filament
• ABS is ideal for a robust print with some flexibility
• Each reel provides approximately 500g/250m of filamentWill this filament work with my 3D printer?
Designed for the UP! Series of 3D printers Order Codes A40UU & A25LT) this filament is compatible with most printers that will take a 1.75mm filament. The spool has a diameter of 200mm and a hole diameter of 52mm. Check your printer for its filament compatibility before purchasing.
Why pick this filament?
Stock up with 1kg 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 is 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.
Storing 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 to ensure when you come to use, or reuse it, you’ll have the best quality print every time.
