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. Firstly make sure that you print bed is accurately levelled.
