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°

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
