High Quality ABS That Fits in Material Station

Posted · High Quality ABS That Fits in Material Station

Can anybody recommend a high-quality ABS with spools that fit in the Material Station. The Matterhackers PRO spools are a bit too wide. They fit if you sort of jam them in, but they don't turn freely. They sort of work while unspooling, but it's a mess when they need to roll the filament back up. I've had good luck with IC3D ABS over the years, but their spools are too big also. Ultimaker spools are guaranteed to fit of course.

    I was just about to suggest that.

    Personally I really like the UM ABS, it is much easier to print than other brands and I always get good results. But check carefully the specs, the UM ABS has a slightly lower glass transition temp than "normal" ABS.

    I have a couple of spools of UM ABS, and the only real reason for looking for something else is cost. The Ultimaker premium for ABS is pretty high; but having to re-spool rolls of cheaper ABS has a cost too.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
