For your STEM curriculum.
ABS is a strong plastic with mild flexibility when compared to PLA. This flexibility makes creating interlocking pieces or pin-connected pieces easier to work with. ABS can be easily sanded and machined, plus it is soluble in acetone, which lets you weld parts together with just one or two drops or you can create a smooth, high-gloss finish by dipping or brushing the entire piece in acetone. The flexibility, strength, ability to be machined, and resistance to higher temperature make ABS the preferred plastic for engineers and professional applications. It is important to note that this is a petroleum-based product and will emit a
hot plastic smell, plus it requires the user to have a heated print bed, which means there are some printers that will be incapable of reliably printing with ABS. Filament is 3 mm thick and comes on a 2.2-lb. spool. Made in U.S.A.
NOTE: ABS filament can only be used on the MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer (NZ10181) and not compatible with other MakerBot 3D Printers.
