SKILCRAFT® 3D ABS Pro

 Engineering grade thermoplastic, excellent for complex, but durable, 3D prints

About SKILCRAFT 3D ABS Pro

SKILCRAFT 3D ABS Pro is an engineering grade thermoplastic, easy to modify after printing. Our ABS Pro is an ideal filament choice for printing complex 3D objects that must be both structurally sturdy and withstand rough treatment and high temperatures.

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is generally attractive for its hardness, gloss, toughness, and electrical insulation properties. SKILCRAFT 3D ABS Pro has super layer bond that translates to excellent strength and impact resistance. During post processing, this material grants more control and options to finish the end piece.

Available in 1 kg / 1.75mm in Black, White, Natural.

SKILCRAFT 3D ABS Pro is on GSA Advantage under NCSS Contract #47QSMA18D08P8.

Success Tips

Before starting your print, consider:

  1. Has your material been exposed to moisture? If it is new and in the vacuum-sealed bag with desiccate, you should be fine .But if there is a risk of exposure, it is best to remove as much moisture as possible for optimum printing. Drying the filament in a heated oven environment from 100-120 degrees F should do the trick. Our spool is made of recycled polycarbonate, which withstands much higher temperatures than typical spools mad of HIPS.
  2. If your application requires maximum strength, we recommend post-annealing after the print is complete. Annealing is a reheating process at a lower temperature that reduces stress in the material and creates a stronger bond. This 1) yields better mechanical and thermal properties and 2) reduces the possibility of cracking due to contraction and expansion over time. Typically, you perform the annealing in an oven at a temperature range of 176-266° F (80-130° C)

Other considerations:

  • Recommended Print Speed: we find results are best at a speed of 40 ñ 100 mm/s
  • For prints with curvatures, we recommend turning on rafts and supports in your settings
  • For more stability and a higher quality print, we suggest adjusting three settings:
    • (1) reduce the speed of the extruder to 30-60mm/second;
    • (2) Increase infill to 30%;
    • (3) Reduce layer height to 0.10mm
