Blue Smartfil ABS filament is made in Spain for "Smart Materials 3D" to 3D printers. Blue Smartfil ABS filament (1.75mm or 2,85mm) spools are compatible with multiple types of 3D printers. Blue Smartfil ABS filament is a plastic whose main features are that is tough, hard and rigid (mechanical strength), with chemical resistance and abrasion. In addition the Blue Smartfil ABS (1.75mm or 2,85mm) is additive to reduce the warping effect (appears due to the shrinkage of the plastic as it cools affecting the first layer of the piece off the printer dock) and cracking effect (similar to warping but will affect the intermediate layers causing delamination of the piece).
Because additives Blue Smartfil ABS filament (1.75mm or 2,85mm) is much easier to print than other ABS standards, which have also allowed only necessary to have a temperature of bed 60 versus 80-110 ºC of ABS standards. It is also noteworthy Blue Smartfil ABS filament excellent printing stability and regularity.
This ABS plastic is used in some of everyday objects, such as most plastic boxes, toys or housings many electronic devices. Another important feature of Blue Smartfil ABS filament (1.75mm or 2,85mm) is having the ability to absorb water. So if you want to do any container that will contain water, may not be the most suitable material. Unlike the PLA, it is not biodegradable and one of the weaknesses of the ABS is suffering with exposure to UV rays, so that the ASA has emerged as an evolution of ABS materials to alleviate this weakness of ABS.
The optimum temperature for extrusion Blue Smartfil ABS filament (1.75mm or 2,85mm) is around 240 °C, slightly higher than the PLA Smartfil. In the tab usage tips you will find more interesting information to get the best results using this Blue Smartfil ABS filament on your 3D printer. The 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 resistance to chemical attack, toughness and high temperature stability. Butadiene, temperature toughness when it is particularly low, and resistance to impact; and styrene, mechanical strength, stiffness, brightness, hardness.

The Blue Smartfil ABS filament (1.75mm or 2,85mm) can be machined, grinding, sanding, boring, paint and glue with extreme ease, maintaining a really good finish. In addition, it is extremely durable and has some flexibility. If you want to achieve extraordinary surface finishes using the coating specifically designed for 3D printing you can find in the accessories category called XTC-3D. ABS is soluble in acetone so many users perform 3D printing vapor bath of acetone to obtain smooth and shiny surface finishes. It is advisable for a proper bed cover 3D printer with Kapton Tape, BuildTak, DimaFix, Magigoo or with 3DLac you can find in print accessories store.
