ABS 1KG - Black 3D Printer Filament

Recycled. Redefined. Revolutionary.

ABS is a common 3D printer filament, famous for its strength. However, ABS is also infamous for warping, having a strong odour whilst printing, and being generally environmentally unfriendly. Filamentive has changed this – ABS is actually only 60% ABS, making it less impactful on the environment. We have also ensured that the material has minimal warping, as well as excellent adhesion – both interlayer and to the heated bed. Containing only 60% ABS does not compromise its mechanical properties; Filamentive ABS has enhanced strength compared to regular ABS. The ideal material if you require strong, lightweight parts, that are impact resistant.

*Due to the enhanced formula of our ABS, the effects of acetone vapour smoothing may be extremely limited.*

    I have tried many different makes of ABS including ones from premium brands and I have to say this Filamentive rABS outperforms all of them.

    Printing on glass with hairspray (Savers own brand) the part quality and finish is simply amazing. Warping is practically nil (observing heat bed temperatures and bed preperation naturally). I even get great prints with my Creality Ender 2
    (open framed) printer with a bed temperature of only 80 degrees! My only gripe is that I wished I had found this ABS sooner!

    Highly recommended and from my perspective it means that Filamentive rABS is not only affordable and environmentally friendly it is now my ONLY choice for ABS printing.

    This is a great filament! It sticks incredibly well to my glass print bed, even at bed temperatures as low as 75 degrees. As promised, warping and smell is effectively reduced compared to regular ABS from other manufactures. And it is environmently friendly!

    I haven’t tried any other ABS filaments and after printing with rABS I don’t feel like I need to. I have found it to stick very well to the bed and produces great quailty prints and the smell is not very noticeable at all.

    The only thing I will say is that this filament seems to stick to the bed almost too well. I am using a Prusa i3 Mk3 and I initially used the Prusa recommended temperature profiles for printing. (100-110°C bed temp) The prints stuck to the bed so well that I was afraid of damaging the PEI print surface. Applying glue stick to the print surface helped. I have also had good success by dropping the bed temp right down to 75°C and below. Even at these low temps the bed adhesion is still very good but makes it much easier to release the print from the bed afterwards.

    I definitely recommend this filament but just be aware that you don’t need to go in at the normal high bed temps!

    Great filament! I don’t have any experience printing with standard ABS to compare but I have found none of the issues that are normally associated with ABS.

    In fact, I found that I needed to drop the bed temperatures way down to 75°C or below in order to get the prints to release relatively easily to a PEI print surface. At the generally recommended 100-110°C bed temps the prints stuck so well that I was afraid of damaging the print surface when removing.

    My large printer loves this ABS filament, No warpping, the walls are smooth and best of all no layer splits. no enclosure used and have lots of drafts from people walking pass. Will buy more 🙂

    Great filament! Bed & inter-layer adhesion, print quality, consistency and strength are all great – better than most virgin ABS filaments I have used!
