ABS is a commonly used filament suitable for making more durable and stronger parts than with PLA, as it can stand higher temperatures, it is slightly more flexible and can be easily painted. It can be treated with acetone or acetone vapor to give it a glossy finish (be careful!) and to make the object stronger, or to solidly glue parts together. Use HIPS as support material for printing ABS. ABS shrinks when it cools so you should use an enclosed printer with warm and steady air temperature (>25°C) in order to prevent delamination or warping.

Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
