- When used with MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printers, MakerBot ABS material helps produce higher-quality prints, reduce material problems, and minimize downtime.
- Because it’s more flexible than PLA, MakerBot ABS is great for mechanical designs or ones that have interlocking or pin-connected pieces.
- Compared to PLA, ABS has a longer lifespan, is more impact resistant, and has a more matte look and finish. ABS material has a high melting point, so it’s suitable for machine or car parts.
- The material is also soluble in acetone- you can “weld” parts together with just a drop or two and create a high gloss by brushing or dipping full ABS pieces in acetone. ABS material adheres well to Kapton tape on a heated build plate.
