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?
