eSun ABS vs Ultimaker ABS top layer quality

Recommended Posts

Posted · eSun ABS vs Ultimaker ABS top layer quality

I made some prints using the Ultimaker ABS and the top surface looks acceptable. I tried some eSun ABS with the generic ABS profile and the top layer quality is far inferior. The best I can describe it is having deep lines making it much less smooth. I know I could use ironing, but that adds a lot to the cycle time.


Does anyone have a good profile for eSUN ABS or suggestions on how to flatten down the top layer lines without ironing?
