This is a color changing filament. The color below 30°C is Grey and above 30°C is white.
ABS filament (Also known from the Lego® bricks) is a strong and durable 3D-Printer filament that is well suited for heavy duty objects. 3D-Printing with ABS filament guarantees a strong and durable product.
The maximum environmental temperatures for ABS products lies between -35 and 100 oC. This makes ABS printed products also suitable for high temperature applications. A product 3D-Printed with ABS filament can also be polished using acetone. The acetone will slowly dissolve the ABS so smoothen out build layers and create a beautiful glossy finish.

Pro’s and Con’s of ABS
+ Very strong
+ Can be finished with acetone
- 3D-Printer requires a heated bed
- Plastic smell during printing (requires well ventilated room)
ABS filament is, with the right settings and proper 3D-Printer, pretty easy to 3D-Print. We do, however, recommend reading ABS filament 3D-printer settings page thoroughly. Here you will find all the necessary information and proper 3D-Printer settings to start printing successful 3D-Prints with ABS 3D-Printer filament.
