What’s the first thing you do after purchasing a 3D printer? You choose which filament to use! And with our endless range of filaments to choose from, you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice.
ABS, or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, first emerged in the 1940’s and was immediately embraced by numerous industries for a variety of purposes, including to trial new products against hard impacts.
The material’s ability to maintain its structure and longevity in a wide range of forms makes it very popular in traditional manufacturing. Indeed, engineers tend to prefer ABS filament for its flexibility, strength, machinability and high temperature resistance.
So... what does that mean for the DIY hobbyists who want to engage in some fun 3D printing objects at home?
As one of the most common materials currently being used in 3D printing the world over, ABS filament is a logical choice for your 3D printing needs. Not only is it a highly durable thermoplastic (which ensures your 3D printed objects will resist wear and tear for a long time), but it also holds strong electrical insulation properties.
Any objects made from ABS materials can be processed with acetone; resulting in a smooth, glossy finish. Silk filament is also an appropriate choice if you are seeking a shiny metallic, slightly translucent finish. Customers who shop for ABS filament with Phaser FPV also tend to enjoy our extensive selection of SLA resin, PLA filament and other 3D printing supplies.
