Used by an array of industries worldwide, ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is known for its exceptional mechanical properties. Specifically formulated to minimize warping and ensure consistent interlayer adhesion, our ABS allows the creation of functional prototypes and complex end-use parts with ease.
Reasons To Choose Ultimaker ABS
ABS is used to print functional prototypes in automotive companies due to its high strength and durability.
- Excellent mechanical properties
- Excellent interlayer adhesion, especially when using the front door add-on
- Withstands temperatures up to 85 ‚ºC
- Great for exceptionally strong prototypes or end-use parts
- Allows to achieve nicer aesthetics compared to other ABS filaments
- Formulated for an easy 3D printing experience with minimal warping and good bed adhesion
Test Your Prototypes
ABS provides engineers with a low-cost approach for product development cycles, allowing them to quickly design, print, and test their prototypes before entering full production.
With 3D printing, you can accurately test and simulate the form, fit and function of an end product performance giving you confidence in the final design.
Transition from concept design to manufacturing in days thanks to the ability of ABS filament to create highly-functional and mechanically strong products.
Ultimaker ABS: Tough and Durable
Ultimaker ABS has been specifically designed for 3D printing with low warping in order to create strong mechanical parts. Combined with our proven ABS profiles for Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 3 in Cura, we have designed our ABS to be reliable during 3D printing.
