Where to buy good ABS filament

Recommended Posts

A few days later... the printer arrived today and I just finished my first print (it is still cooling down)

I used the default settings for ABS. The ABS from 3DNinja comes in boxes from 3DPrima.com but I think it's kind of the same company. The ABS is vacuum sealed.

This is the first print:


not perfect... I might to recallibrate the glass plate and adjust the temperature for better results. A lot of testing is for the next days and weeks.

After some testing I already get a better result! The standard temperature for ABS of 260° is too hot for this filament. Something around 240 is much better.


left first first, right 243°
