    It is a filament whose main characteristics are it´s strength, toughness and durability.

    Red ABS Basic is a manufactured filament in Europe for 3D printers. Spools 1kg (2,3 lb) Red ABS Basic support multiple types of 3D printers. Red ABS Basic (1,75mm or 3mm) is a plastic whose main mechanical features are its strength, toughness and opacity.

    ABS plastic is used in some everyday objects, such as most plastic boxes, toys or carcasses of many electronic devices. Another important characteristic of Red ABS Basic (1,75mm or 3mm) is that it has the capacity to absorb water. So if you want to make any container that will hold water, maybe not the most suitable material.

    Optimum temperature for extruder Red ABS Basic (1,75mm or 3mm) is around 230ºC, slightly higher than the PLA. In the tab usage tips, you will find more interesting information for best results using this Red ABS Basic filament on your 3D printer. ABS is a polymer composed of three blocks, acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene by what is called terpolymer. Each of the three blocks provides different characteristics. The acrylonitrile rigidity strength etch, hardness and stability to high temperatures. The butadiene temperature toughness when it is particularly low and impact resistance; and styrene, strength, stiffness, gloss, hardness.If you are interested in learning more about this material you can read more in the following link.

    Red ABS Basic can be machined, polishing, sanding, drilling, painting and pasting with extreme ease, keeping a really good finish. Furthermore, it is extremely durable and has a little flexibility. If you wish to obtain special surface finishes using the coating specifically designed for 3D printing you'll find in the accessory category called XTC-3D.It is advised for proper 3D printing coated bed printer with Kapton TapeBuildTakDimaFixMagigoo or 3DLac you can find in the store fixtures.

    3D printing with ABS filament  is a bit more complex than the PLA filament. For ABS Basic filament is necessary that the print base is hot, between 90 and 120 °C. In addition, the extruder temperature should be between 215 and 230 ºC depending on the color used. It should also be remembered that the ABS plastic suffer the phenomenon called "warping" which causes the first layer of the pieces off the base of the 3D printer.

    So if you are printing large pieces it is advisable to use BuildTak, Kapton Tape, DimaFix, Magigoo or 3DLac so that the pieces do not tend to detach from the base. It is also advisable to set the "raft" which is to create a first thick layer, and supports that will not suffer that contraction and on which is printed the piece. The disadvantage of using the "raft" is that this first layer will have a less smooth. It is advisable to lower the density of "infill" parameter for the part to store less heat. As for the "brim" (the membrane that is created around the part) parameter is recommended never fit in greater thicknesses of 5mm to help the first layer does not come off.

    If you need to print very thin and tall pieces, you'll notice that the plastic ABS does not give you enough time to harden each layer printing and therefore the piece is as if it had melted. To solve this problem we give a very simple advice, printed at the same time at least 2 pieces, and place them in separate base. This way while the extruder is moved from one piece to another in each print layer, the plastic will have time to harden obtaining a much better result.

    As for the room temperature where printed is recommended to be controlled and no drafts. Finally remember to use your 3D printer in a well ventilated room as vapors released during printing with ABS filament are not entirely healthy.
