ABS filament is almost a household name for 3D printing, so picking the right filament brand means half of success in your printing endeavor. Australian-made ABS thermoplastic is perfect for the most daring printing projects, and it allows you to stay loyal to local manufacturers – at a very reasonable price. Do more with Australian printing supplies!

Essential Properties Of ABS Filament For 3D Printing

ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is probably the go-to filament for most printing needs, from toys to home equipment parts to rapid prototypes. It’s produced from petroleum monomer with the addition of rubber for improved flexibility and resistance to breaking. The key advantage of ABS is easy processing and finishing, which makes it a perfect choice for industrial-grade projects. It’s non-biodegradable, so it requires proper discarding.

People buy ABS filament because it is light, resistant to tear, wear, and physical impact (within reason), and can withstand exposure to chemical agents and heat. It is not to say that ABS filament is totally indestructible. Rather, in comparison to other types of filament, it has properties that make it suitable for projects that require stability, elasticity, and durability of the material.

In the process of printing, ABS filament retains its chemical composition, is easy to melt and to machine after cooling. If printing guidelines are closely observed, the completed detail requires a minimum of finishing or additional processing. It makes production cheaper and less time-consuming.

Advantages Of ABS Filament

– ABS filament is cheap. The low price per kilo should not alarm you as it is typical in the market.

– ABS is really easy to work with (relatively easy, at least). It is not as rigid as PLA, it is light, elastic but at the same time does not scratch or break easily. It can take relatively high temperatures, electrical impact and emerge from a meeting with household chemicals unharmed.

– The final finish of created object plays a big role in how this object will look or how it will be used (if used at all). The chemical properties of ABS make its post-processing a breeze, with fast filing, sanding, or acetone vapor treatment. The latter provides for a perfect polished surface, which is often essential.

ABS Features That Can Cause Troubles In 3D Printing

– It is not odourless as most other plastics. This is a property of styrene to emit gas when heated, so it cannot be avoided in ABS.

– This filament requires care while printing because its outer layers cool faster than inner layers. It can cause cracking, warping, shrinking, and other distortions of shape. Bed and nozzle temperatures need to be controlled.

– ABS filament for 3D printer does not take direct intensive sunlight well, so it’s not a valid option for manufacturing any outdoor contraptions.

How To Counter These Negative Effects? 

– Print in a well-ventilated room to avoid gas intoxication.

– Put a printer into an insulated casing to keep the temperature warm and avoid drafts.

– Use a heated bed to print objects on (around 110℃). In such a way, you will prevent fast cooling and shrinking of the printed part of a detail while the top is still being printed.

– Use adhesives to keep a detail immovable on the bed. Glue stick or ABS slurry (acetone-diluted) will be OK for this purpose.

– Control the cooling fans. A good idea is to turn off fans altogether for the first several printed layers and let them cool naturally.

How To Pick The Best ABS Plastic For Your Project

ABS filament in Australia as well as across the world is made after the same chemical ‘recipe’, the only difference being the number of available colors and price per spool/kg. Some manufacturers may claim their filament has a lower level of gas emission or promise less clogging during printing, but it is mostly the matter of printing conditions and your experience. So the key argument in choosing is brand reputation and your color preferences.

One more point to consider is where to buy 3d printer abs filament (and who manufactured it). If you want to support your local manufacturers, we can recommend the brand Aurarum that trades in printers, filaments, and 3D printing supplies of their own production. Along with the boost of your national pride, you get lower prices, guarantees of quality, and various perks for your next purchase. And, above all, you buy the top-grade filament in a variety of colors that will demonstrate outstanding performance both during printing and the following exploitation of a created part or object.
