Description

Fillamentum ABS Extrafill is a material for the FFF (also known as FDM) 3D printing technology.

The advantage of this material is that it can be used in 3D printers easily, for high quality of printing even in tricky details, plus excellent lamination of the printed object.

ABS filament is a polymer which is ideal for the production of the first functional samples before serial production for functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, but also for the production of goods for everyday use.

Use of the ABS material in the food industry is dependent on the final product and responsibility for use is on the user of ABS Extrafill. ABS is not intended for medical applications.

Fillamentum guarantees high precision of filament dimensions within the tolerance of +/- 0,05 mm, which is strictly controlled throughout the production.

Printing filaments reported on the market under the trademark Fillamentum are produced in a wide variety of colours in accordance with the colour charts RAL and Pantone, and also in own unique colour ranges.

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.

    Lovely stuff, BUT….

    I’ll be blunt; fantastic filament, beautiful finish, easy to process, easy to dial in (although does need a VERY small platform gap to prevent peeling) and I REALLY want to recommend it. But I can’t for one reason, and it’s the reason I seem to be getting with ALL Fillamentum ABS filaments; the reels are AWFUL. I really hope Fillamentum read these reviews. If they are, this is a direct PLEA to you, guys: PLEASE, for the love of GOD, either redesign your reels or just wind them better!! EVERY ABS filament I’ve ever had from Fillamentum, and I mean EVERY filament, has had the same problem; for the first roughly 20% of the reel you have to watch prints like a hawk because the filament always, ALWAYS, jumps off the reel and wraps around the spindle. You then have to either stop the print and untangle it, probably having to cut off and waste several metres of filament which is now tightly curled into a ball, or you have to wrestle with the reel and try to untangle it while the print is still running. While this is, of course, possible (although with a LOT of bad, grownup language) I’ve got WAY better things to be doing rather than listening for every little crack and crunch which heralds the genesis of yet ANOTHER ball of ABS spaghetti. Fillamentum, please, your ABS is lovely stuff and your PLA is outstanding, but I’m always VERY reticent to buy more of your ABS because I get the same reel-juggling problem every time. My money is here waiting for you, just cure this problem and I’ll be as keen on your ABS as I am on your PLA!!
