LulzBot ABS 3mm filament


ABS, or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, one of the most popular 3D printing materials in the world. People new to 3D printing, or accustomed to only printing with other materials like PLA, may wonder when to print with ABS filament? As a 3D printing filament, ABS is known for its strength and durability.

ABS is a highly versatile plastic that is used to make anything from puzzles to production automotive components.Another reason ABS has become so popular is that it is easy to print. Every LulzBot TAZ printer ships with an ABS preset which will preheat the nozzle and bed to the correct ABS printing temperatures, making it even easier for you to begin printing your ABS part.

Here at Aleph Objects, we believe in the strength of our ABS parts printed on our LulzBot 3D printers. Every TAZ printer has over 40 printed ABS parts coming from our “cluster”, which utilizes 135 TAZ machines printing 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. We depend on the integrity of LulzBot ABS filament to ensure our users have the best printer on the market. And with over 10 available colors of ABS in 1 kg reels, users can print their own parts and modify their TAZ printers to their heart's desires using our open source files and designs. We also offer study LulzBot ABS 5 lb reels for high volume users.

In our latest filament profile video, we chose to print a GoPro camera handle mount to capture footage while walking, hiking, running, and more. To see how the print turned out, take a look at our ABS filament profile video below.
