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.

    Decent utility ABS

    I bought this ABS originally to use with antweight combat robots and I have to say its been rather useful for the purpose so far! It was rather fiddly to get working to begin with but once I had the settings dialled in I’ve found this inexpensive ABS to be fairly durable in combat, with delamination only really occuring on big impacts and with splintering not having been an issue. The print quality is on the whole very good, though it does struggle more with overhangs than my other ABS filaments. It’s a very bright red colour which is great, its definitely striking and doesn’t dull out with printing. On the downside however, this ABS seems to have major issues with warping compared to others I’ve used. Even with a proper enclosure and plenty of ambient heating, I haven’t been able to prevent warping or layer splits (The latter of which are very common with larger prints). It also seems comparitively quite ooze-y so high retraction settings are a must. Despite this however, for the smaller prints I do this cheap filament has been well worth the effort and I’d still recommend it for most users.
