ABS

Its strength, flexibility, machinability, and higher temperature resistance make it often a preferred plastic for engineers, and professional applications.

  • Parts printed using ABS have a "bend” to them and are less brittle than PLA.
  • In general, parts printed using ABS have a glossier finish than PLA parts.
  • ABS starts to become malleable (heat deflection point) at around 100 °C (which makes it more heat resistant than PLA).
  • ABS has a lower coefficient of friction than PLA and requires slightly less force to be extruded than PLA.
  • ABS can be considered the "legacy” type of filament since it was used for 3D printing before PLA.
