3D-Fuel Workday ABS filament

  • $ 2995


Workday ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a go-to material for projects that require durability and the ability to withstand high temperatures. 3D-Fuel's unique formulation was designed to be low-warp and low odor compared to many other brands. ABS is used for high strength applications and is a petroleum-based material product, so it holds up well in a variety of environment. ABS requires a heated bed to print successfully and works best with an enclosed print area to protect from drafts. 

Note:  ABS creates mild, tolerable fumes while being extruded. These fumes, while usually tolerable, may be dangerous for people (or pet birds) with chemical sensitivities or breathing difficulties. Make sure that your printer is in a well-ventilated area and make sure to avoid breathing the fumes.

Print Cooling fan?

Print Cooling fans should generally be turned off when printing with ABS filament as cooling the printed layers too fast can reduce adhesion between the printed layers and cause stress cracks. However, especially when printing very small areas with very little time between layers a cooling fan set to turn on at a very low speed (~10%) can sometimes improve the print quality.
