ABS

Available in a wide range of colors, ABS is a low cost thermoplastic that’s tough enough for prototyping and manufacturing functional parts.

Affordable, Functional Parts

ABS is a common plastic with good mechanical properties, higher than PLA but with less detail.

Tough enough for mechanical and functional parts, cheap enough to tackle iterative design and production. ABS is a great low cost option for parts that require quick turnaround. With a matte finish and a wide range of colors, ABS parts can be sanded, chemically smoothed and post-processed easily.

Advantages Of ABS

general-use

General Purpose

ABS prints with a matte surface and comes in a wide color range, it’s a great choice for general purpose prototyping and end-use parts.

general-purpose

Affordable Parts

Ease of use and low cost make ABS the perfect material for iterative design projects, rapid prototyping and even small scale production on a budget.

post-processing

Easy Post Processing

ABS can be post-processed using various methods. Parts can be smoothed with acetone vapors, hand sanded and even painted.
