RS PRO 3D Printer Filament ABS 1.75mm
This ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) from our high-quality own brand RS PRO is a durable impact-resistant filament which is ideal for 3D printing of solid printed products. RS PRO ABS filament is specifically formulated to minimize warping and ensure consistent interlayer adhesion.
RS PRO ABS filament can be used in visual and functional prototyping and short-run manufacturing.
Once you've purchased your filament its important to store it correctly to maintain its quality. Over time the plastic will absorb moisture from the air, creating small water bubbles in the filament. These bubbles, when heated in the extruder nozzle, will quickly reach boiling point, spoiling the print. The use of desiccant dehumidifiers to absorb the moisture is highly recommended.
Does your printer have a heated bed? Is the bed capable of reaching temperatures more than 100°C? ABS tend to warp and peel and often wont stick well to an unheated or underheated print bed. If you have an unheated bed or one that doesnt get hot enough, youll probably want to stick with PLA.
Does your printer have a cooling fan blowing directly at the print area near the end of the nozzle? If it does, youre probably good to go with either material; if not, ABS may be a better choice. PLA has a tendency to curl at corners and overhangs, which can be minimized with proper cooling. While good cooling helps both, ABS may fare better without a fan.
Bed Surface Requirements
ABS adhere best when printed on a bed covered with polyamide tape. If you decide to purchase one, it will go a long way and can be replaced less frequently.
RS PRO is our own brand range and brings you a wide range of high-quality, great value products offering you more choice. Trusted by engineers all over the world, every part of every RS PRO product has been rigorously tested against demanding industry standards; theyre only given the RS PRO Seal of Approval if were confident of their exceptional quality, which means you can be confident too.
