UP Fila Premium ABS 3D printing filament has been studied and developed by Tiertime. This ABS filament has been specially formulated to reduce the effect of warping and to provide easier removal from the support structure compared to conventional ABS. This filament has been designed to work not only with Tiertime printers but also with other 3D printers equipped with a heatbed. Available in a variety of colors, UP Fila Premium ABS is a reliable, high-quality filament with a matte luster and exceptional finish.
Note: Tiertime 2kg spools do not fit in Tiertime 3D printers. We, therefore, recommend that you print a spool holder in order to properly unroll the spool during printing.
Printing tips for ABS filament
ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene ) is a thermoplastic polymer. It is often used in everyday products (remote controls, LEGOS etc ...). It begins to soften at 90 ° C and melt at 190 ° C. ABS is heat resistant and is quite flexible. It will be suitable for printing small, precise and mechanical parts due to its higher resistance to heat and impacts. The use of ABS requires the systematic use of a heatbed to limit the effects of shrinkage, the main defect of this material.
We recommend that you calibrate your nozzle temperatures from 260 ° to 275 ° for this plastic, the heating plate should be ideally set at 130 ° to avoid warping. These values, given as an indication, should be adjusted to ensure optimal results.
ABS contains Styrene, which is emitted during melting in the form of fine particles, which can be dangerous for people with respiratory disorders and whose effects on humans are little known. As a precaution, we recommend you to use careened and filtered 3D printers in order to print in ABS, in dedicated empty spaces or spacious and ventilated place. Otherwise, please consider using the PLA filament, which does not present any known danger for the man until this day.
