Poly acrylonitrile butadiene styrene – apart from PLA one of the main materials for 3D printers. Features a high impact strength, hardness and resistance to scratching. It is not resistant to UV radiation. Soluble in acetone, which allows for post-processing of prints by using the acetone vaporizing method. ABS prints can also be glued together with ABS solved in acetone. ABS features a fairly significant thermal shrinkage (up to 0.7%). The typical operating temperature for ABS is 220 to 250 Celsius degrees and about 100 Celsius degrees for the bed. The heated working space is necessary to maintain dimensional compatibility for printed items.
