What ABS to buy?

Recommended Posts

Posted · What ABS to buy?

I'm running out of black ABS and need to re-stock.

What are your recommendations for best quality ABS available in Europe?

I mainly print parts of prosthetic hands for children and such, so it must be durable and to look good - top quality, in short.

 

Thanks,

Alexander

Never printed ABS, but I think with the UM ABS spools you are good to go. 

I have also good results with UM CPE or Colorfabb XT, both not ABS, but maybe an alternative to ABS if it fits your needs.

 

But when you have good results with your current ABS, I would buy it again and not try another brand.

I would suggest ABS Filament from RS.

I think they sell rebranded Filaments from Dutch Filaments.... Dutch Filaments in return supply Ultimaker as well i guess.... but maybe thats wrong.

However: RS also sell so called M-ABS.... again from Dutch Filaments it's easy to print and more easy to get strong Parts out of, I would prefer it over standard ABS.... but its around in only a few translucent colours
