Mechanical resistance problem with Esun ABS filament.

Recommended Posts

Hello Community!

(Sorry in advance if it's not the correct rubric.)

I created a part for my hobby, but I find my printed parts too fragile.

I printed them with Esun ABS and I tried many parameters, but the results are too brittle. ABS material is know as a little bit flexible, but my parts crack for nothing.

Layer: 0.08 to 0.2

Thickness: 0.8 to 1.2

Filling: 25 to 50%

Speed: 25mm/s to 50mm/s

Fan: 0% to 50%

Bed: 100 to 110°C

Head: 240 to 250°C

And now, I'm trying with a cover on front and partly on top to keep a maximum of the temperature (I measure approx. 48°C in the box next to the part).

Many thanks for your help.

(Sorry for my English, I seldom practice..)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
