Recommended Print Temperature: 230 - 240°C, depending on printer model
Compatible with RepRap, Makerbot, Afinia, Solidoodle or any standard spool based 3D printer
Gizmo Dorks We provide the highest quality 3D printing materials such as ABS, PLA, HIPS, PVA, and more. Our filaments are run with tight tolerances. There are no air bubbles or oily residues. Every filament comes loaded on a durable, hard plastic spool, not a cheap, flimsy cardboard spool.
ABS, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, is a favorite filament among 3D printer users because it is light weight and durable. It can be injection molded which makes it perfect for 3D printing extruders. It has a high glass transition temperature to reduce deformation, but it is also low enough to be safely attainable with standard 3D printers. ABS is a hard strong plastic with some flexibility when compared to PLA. It is also soluble in Acetone, and it can be easily sanded and machined.
Compatible with RepRap, Makerbot, UP!, Lulzbot, Afinia, Solidoodle, MakerGear, Printrbot LC, and more!
FAQ? Is the spindle hole large enough to fit my Makerbot printer? Yes! Our spindle holes are large enough to fit the Makerbot printers. You don't have to worry about fabricating a spindle extension any longer. *NOTE, these spools will not fit inside of the new Makerbot 5th generation printer drawers. You can still use these spools and feed the filament directly through the top of the printer.
What other colors are available? ABS comes in a variety of different vibrant colors, 30 different options total. *New fluorescent colors are available. They glow under UV light, commonly known as black light. *New color changing filaments are available; the filaments will change colors at 31°C (88°F). The filament is one color below 31°C, and when it is heated above 31°C, the filament will change to another color. *New conductive ABS filament available. The conductive black ABS filament is exactly what the name implies. The conductive filament can be used for anti-static, static dissipative, and conduction of electric current.
