ABS X is the next-generation ABS filament. By applying zero warp technology to the filament it has created an ABS filament with far less cracking, near perfect interlayers, reliable bed adhesion (glass, tape & other adhesives) while improving the mechanical properties making ABS X extra strong. These properties make ABS X the ultimate ABS replacement that prints strong and beautiful parts on any FDM 3D printer without the common headaches associated with regular ABS like warping & horrible bed adhesion.

**Please Note**  This new ABS filament is super to print with, though we found that due to the modifications to the material in order for it to become low warp and low odour, it does not necessarily vapour smooth as well as an unmodified ABS material.  Though it does sand well which is a bonus!

ABS X is the perfect material for strong objects that require an high impact tolerance.

Recommended temperature for heated bed is ± 80-90°C. FilaPrint ABS X is printed at a slighter higher temperature to make the final product extra strong.  FilaPrint ABS X can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers. Storage: Cool and dry (15-25°C), as this can aid shelf life significantly.

This 1kg of filament spool is shrink wrapped, boxed and shrink wrapped again. Ensuring that it arrives with you moisture free and ready to print.  

Superb tolerances with a smooth finish, a perfect compliment to your 3D printer.  The price indicated already includes UK delivery.

Purchase any two spools from our webstore on a single order and receive them the next day Monday to Friday, only within the UK.

ABS

Overview

Strong and robust. Heat and chemical resilient. An Inexpensive choice for engineering-grade prints.

ABS has solid mechanical properties in the form of heat and impact resistance. Its high durability makes it perfect for printing moving and weight-bearing parts. ABS is shatter resistant; when pushed to its limit parts will bend or warp instead of snapping or shattering. ABS has decent chemical sustainability, making it resilient to sunlight, moisture, acids, and oils. Long exposure to sunlight may cause prints to degrade, making ASA a better choice for outdoor prints.

ABS is quite a common material making it relatively inexpensive whilst also being built to last in tough environments. The main detriment is that it can be quite difficult to print with, and can require printer tuning to get the perfect print.
Printed parts can be polished with acetone, giving them a smooth and glossy finish and hiding layer lines. When printing with this material, it is possible that toxic fumes are produced. This can be circumvented by printing In a well-ventilated area or using an extractor.

Used for: Injection molding, LEGO, electronic casings, automotive parts.

ABS-X

Overview

Strong and robust. Heat and chemical resilient. An Inexpensive choice for engineering-grade prints.

ABS-X is a modified version of ABS – The filament contains additives which help printability by preventing warping and having reliable bed adhesion. Unlike standard ABS, ABS-X can be printed without an enclosure, while still retaining the high strength and durability that the standard ABS is known for.

This Material has exceptional durability and is perfect for printing moving parts and weight-bearing parts. Under extreme amounts of pressure and stress, objects printed in ABS-X tend to lightly bend and flex rather than shattering and snapping. ABS-X has decent chemical sustainability, making it resilient to sunlight, moisture, acids, and oils. Printed parts can be polished with acetone, giving them a smooth and glossy finish and hiding layer lines. When printing with this material, it is possible that toxic fumes are produced. This can be circumvented by printing In a well-ventilated area or using an extractor.

Used for: Injection moulding, LEGO, electronic casings, automotive parts.

    I’ve gone through a spool of this. It prints really well, no warping and layers adhered well. But I found that if you smooth your prints with acetone it’ll leave an uneven white-ish coat when it dries. 3D FilaPrint Reply Thank you for your review and valued custom. We will place a note on the product pages. We found that due to the modifications to the material in order for it to become low warp and low odour it does not necessarily vapour smooth as well as an unmodified ABS material.

    Very impressive! I can see why its now out of stock in black!

    Upon needing a tougher material for some mechanical designs I decided to try ABS. After a few failed prints on my regular settings I figured the problem parameter (its a bit more sensitive to thin layers than PLA) I am now getting the best quality prints I have ever had, even better than PLA in terms of surface finish, layer adhesion and strength. I suppose the low warp is helpful considering I don’t use an enclosure and the printer is located in a naturally cold environment. Definitely going to get some more when black returns to stock.

    My go-to black ABS filament!

    When I originally switched over to using Filaprint ABS the black filament was one of the first I ordered, as I get through…. quite a bit of it. I actually discovered the ABS-X black quite by accident; I’d seen it listed in the store, but I wondered why it was that little bit more expensive when it really looked no different to the ABS. How wrong I was… At one point the ABS was out of stock so I thought what the hell, I’d pay that little bit extra and give the ABS-X a go. What I found made me turn to the ABS-X as my go-to black filament. It’s really easy to print with (even on my Zortrax M-200s, which are not really designed to use 3rd party filaments), it’s strong, has never (to my knowledge) delaminated for me and when finished and polished it gives a BEAUTIFUL smooth, shiny finish. I do still order the ABS black, but only really when the ABS-X is out of stock. Yes, the ABS-X is that little bit more expensive… but it’s MORE than worth that little bit extra! Try this if you need a really good ABS black, you will NOT regret it!

    First off, a warning – the build plate adhesion with this material is incredibly good. I usually print with a textured PEI build surface, but the adhesion with ABS-X is just too good – small lines like skirts and priming lines are nearly impossible to get off. Smooth PEI I’ve found much better, but make sure you get your first layer squish just right – too much and again you’ll have difficulty getting the material off. On smooth PEI I’m not getting the best bottom layer finish, usually ending up with a bit of a milky colour (see the picture), but as I use this for functional parts I’m not too bothered about it. Warping has been almost non-existent, apart from a couple of long parts with very little bed contact. A small brim sorted that out. Being less sensitive to warping, this material allows you to do things you wouldn’t normally dream about with ABS, such as running a part cooling fan at 100% for the duration of the print, which makes for truly excellent overhangs, bridging and fast prints due to not having to worry so much about minimum layer times.

    ABS X is the only material I can get to stick to a PrintBite bed. It is super reliable, I can print a file and walk away and come back to the job finished. I end up having to choose another black ABS when this is out and I have no end of troubles with lifting and warping issues with other ABS brands
