Features of ABS 1.75mm Filament (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene):
– Ease of Use: Moderate. ABS extrudes well, but setup needs to be correct. Most printing software has a profile that will work for ABS. An important aspect is consistent cooling so low fan speeds and enclosed printers are recommended.
– Print Quality: High. If ABS has the correct setup, it creates high detailed parts with an opaquer finish
– Durability: Moderate. ABS can be used functional parts and to an extent will hold up well
– Price: ABS is more expensive than PLA, but is the cheapest material when printing for functionality
