ABS, a strong filament used for usable objects.
ABS filament (also known from the lego blocks) is a strong and durable 3D printer filament suitable for heavily loaded parts and utensils, among other things. 3D printing with ABS filament gives you a solid 3D print that is guaranteed to last.
The operating temperature of parts printed from ABS filament is between -35 and 100 ° C. This makes ABS also very suitable for parts that heat up during use. A 3D print from ABS filament can also be processed into a smooth surface using Acetone. This removes the visible layers and gives your 3D print a smooth and glossy surface.

Pro’s and Con’s:
+ Very strong
+ Resistent to high temperatures.
+ Long life
+ Tunable to a smooth surface
- Need a warm printing bed
- Plastic smell while printing
