EasyFil ABS is a high-end easy to use 3D printer filament. Our EasyFil ABS is not like regular ABS, because EasyFil ABS has a very high impact-resistance, is extra strong, and above all is easy to print because of its limited warping! It is recommended to set your heated print bed 90-110C when printing with EasyFil ABS. Next to its easy to use features, our Formfutura EasyFil filament range has an excellent roundness and very tight diameter and ovalidity tolerances, which makes this filament a perfect match with all common desktop 3D printers. Printing with EasyFil ABS 3D printer filament will go very smoothly with basically all FFF/FDM technology based desktop 3D printers, such as: Ultimaker RepRap (Mendel, Huxley, Prusa) Solidoodle MakerBot (Replicator, Replicator 2, Replicator 2X) Leapfrog UP! Plus, Up! Mini AND MANY MORE....! ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene in full), is a thermoplastic which, as its name implies, is produced by the polymerization of acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. ABS is produced from fossil fuels, meaning that it is not biodegradable and has a greater environmental impact than PLA for instance. Because of its toughness and strength ABS is a very popular and common used thermoplastic in industry. EasyFil ABS is an extra strong, light, durable, and impact-resistant filament resulting in a very stable 3D printing behaviour making it an ideal filament for 3D printing of solid printed products. Our EasyFil ABS does not contain any hazourdas, or chemical substances. In fact, all our EasyFil ABS filaments are RoHS certified and REACH compliant. Product details Our EasyFil ABS 3D printer filament is wrapped on a plastic spool which contains approximately 0.75Kg of filament. Our spool-wrapped EasyFil ABS filaments are packed in a silica sealed bag and come in a full colour printed cardboard box, which in turn is also sealed in plastic. Please see below for more details with respect to the weight and packaging of our spool-wrapped EasyFil ABS 3D printer filaments: Filament Net Weight: 0.75 Kg Spool Size (D x h): 200 mm x 55 mm Spool Hub Diameter: 52 mm Carton Box Size (L x W x H): 200 mm x 200 mm x 60 mm Packaged weight 1.25 Kg General Tips & Tricks for printing with ABS filaments The printing temperature guideline for printing with our EasyFil ABS filament is approximately 220-260C. As each desktop 3D printer has its own unique characteristics, you might need to tweak around with your temperature settings a bit to get the best results. To obtain optimal results for your prints you need to take into account variables like your 3D printers nozzle diameter, your printing speed settings, and layer height. It is recommended to use a heated print bed when printing ABS. ABS has a tendency to warp, which makes it a difficult material to print without a heated print bed. Even though EasyFil ABS has a lesser tendency to wart than normal ABS it is till recommended to use a heated print bed. Ideally your print bed temperature should be set at approximately 90 to 110 C. Please note that ABS will bend under too much heat, so after the first few layers, its best to turn down your print bed temperature a bit.
