Formfutura Strong Black™ 1.75mm ABS filament is as black as black can get. You know what they say about "once you go black….". Well try to imagine "once you go Strong Black…"!
It doesn't matter which desktop 3D printer you have, as 3D Printing will always go smoothly with Formfutura filament. Our Premium 1.75mm ABS filament prints perfectly with all common desktop 3D printers. Amongst others:
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene in full), is a thermoplastic which, as its name implies, is produced by the polymerization of acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. ABS is produced from fossil fuels, meaning that it is not biodegradable and has a greater environmental impact than PLA for instance. Because of its toughness and strength ABS is a very popular and common used thermoplastic in industry.

General Tips & Tricks for printing with ABS filaments
The printing temperature guideline for printing with our Premium ABS filament is approximately 235°C to 256°C. As each desktop 3D printer has its own unique characteristics, you might need to tweak around with your temperature settings a bit to obtain the best results. To obtain optimal results for your prints you need to take into account variables like your 3D printer’s nozzle diameter, your printing speed settings, and layer height.
It is recommended to use a heated print bed when printing ABS. ABS has a tendency to warp, which makes it a difficult material to print without a heated print bed. Ideally your print bed temperature should be set at approximately 80° to 110 ° C. Please note that ABS will bend under too much heat, so after the first few layers, it’s best to turn down your print bed temperature a bit.
A good first layer adhesion is of the utmost importance in obtaining the best results for your prints. There are several tricks to get the first layer of your ABS print to stick better to the print bed of your 3D printer.
PET tape and Kapton tape are unlikely to leave a residue on your print bed. Hairspray and ABS/Acetone juice coatings will leave a residue on your print bed.
