"To keep your total cost down, we offer UK 2nd Class Royal Mail delivery (2-3 working days) for all lengths or spools of filament as a default. You can, of course, upgrade to 1st Class Royal Mail delivery (1-2 working days) for a small additional fee. Please contact us for prices if you require faster courier deliveries."
3mm ABS plastic filament from 3DP Filament is a great all-rounder in terms of strength and ease of use. A thick filament 3mm is a suitable plastic for Lulzbot Mini and as a Lulzbot Mini 2 filament. It is also a compatible material for Taz 5 and ABS for Taz 6. It is also a filament suitable for Ultimaker 2 3D printers due to its exact precision (2.85mm +/- 0.03mm)
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, otherwise referred to as ABS filament, is a petroleum-based thermoplastic material that is commonly used to create automotive components, protective headgear, plumbing pipes, and even children’s toys such as Lego Bricks.
A firm favourite in the 3D printing industry, ABS Filament is ideally suited to heated plastic extrusion printing applications, and as it can be processed in a wide range of temperatures from 210-260°C, it can be used to produce the highest quality 3D objects and structures that can be sanded, painted, glued, machined, or reworked to create a unique three dimensional print.
ABS Filament is suitable for use with a variety of 3D Printers thanks to its high strength, versatile plastic properties, flexibility, and smooth finish. Commonly used by designers and engineers to create mechanical parts and interlocking structures, it can be sanded and glued to meet the most demanding designs, and it can be dissolved with acetone to make ABS glue, which is ideal for ‘welding’ smaller parts and components together.
AS one of the most popular 3D printing materials in the world, ABS is suitable for both professional and intermediate users, but due to the high temperatures used when extruding this filament, a heated bed is recommended, as is a fume hood or well-ventilated workspace to disperse fumes that sensitive users may find irritating.
Our Grade-A ABS Filament comes in a variety of attractive colours and varying lengths to complement every modern 3D design project. Also available in 1kg net spools and in 1.75mm diameter.
