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.
