Specifically designed for medical applications of topical use and biocompatibility (ISO 10993-1).

ABS Medical Smartfil filament (1.75mm or 2.85mm) is a high quality filament designed specifically for medical applications. This 3D filament has been manufactured with ABS pellets that meet the biocompatibility requirements of USP Class VI or ISO 10993-1 certifications, which guarantees that it is biocompatible up to 30 days in contact with the human body (topical use) .

This material is therefore born to occupy a wide field of medicine as it is the applications of creation of structures of fixation of patients in rehabilitation, personalized prostheses light and resistant, orthopedics, etc. Thanks to the existence of 3D scanners and subsequent modeling, it is possible to carry out custom fitting prostheses for each patient to ensure greater comfort and satisfaction in the patient.

The manufacturer guarantees that the raw material has not been added or modified in the filament manufacturing process.

The optimum extrusion temperature for ABS Medical (1.75mm or 2.85mm) is around 240ºC. It is necessary to have a 3D printer with a hot bed that reaches 90ºC to avoid the warping effect when printing the filament. In the tab of usage tips you will find more interesting information to obtain the best results using this ABS Medical Smartfil filament in your 3D printer.

ABS Medical Smartfil (1.75mm or 2.85mm) can be machined, polished, sanded, bored, painted and glued with extreme ease, maintaining a really good finish.

For 3D print  Medical Smartfil ABS filament is necessary that the print base is hot about 90 °C and the extruder temperature should be around 240ºC. Also worth remembering that the ABS plastic undergoes 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 Magigoo, BuildTak, Kapton Tape, DimaFix 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, such as media, who will not suffer that contraction and on which to print 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 piece) parameter is recommended to set it to never greater thicknesses of 5mm to help the first layer will not peel.

If you need to print very thin and tall pieces, you'll notice that the ABS plastic doesn´t give you enough time to harden in each recording layer and therefore the piece is as if it had melted. To solve this problem we give a very simple advice, it prints at the same time at least two pieces, and place them separate at the base. Thus while the extruder is moved from one room to another in each recording layer, the plastic will have enough time to harden getting a much better result. As for the interior temperature where printed it is recommended to be controlled and no drafts. Finally remember to use your 3D printer in a well ventilated room as the fumes released during printing filament ABS are not entirely healthy.
