Material that combines stiffness and resistance against impacts.
Note: Enable the Raft when printing with ABS to avoid chipping the glass.
ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is one of the most common technical materials in several industries around the globe. It's an engineering material that combines rigidity and resistance to impacts. It is the ideal material for technical applications and moving parts.
Traditionally a challenging material to print with FFF printers, it has been reformulated to ensure good interlayer adhesion and to reduce warping. Our grade allows for excellent dimensional accuracy and high durability.
You can purchase ABS from our store: BCN3D ABS

Build plate adhesion: None or Magigoo
Clean the glass before a print or apply a fine and unified layer of Magigoo glue to achieve a good adhesion between the 3D printed part and the printing surface of your 3D printer in order to keep the part fixed.
It is best to apply Magigoo when the printing bed is cool.
Plastics absorb moisture from the air. For long periods of time without printing, it is
recommended to keep the ABS spools in a box or airtight container with desiccant
to keep them dry.
Once the part is printed, remove carefully the piece to avoid chipping the glass. The removal of the object is easier if you just apply water on the glass.
