3D printing ABS

ABS is easily postprocessed and can endure quite hard mechanical stress. It’s properties are very similar to ASA, but it’s much harder to print, needs an enclosure for the printer and is susceptible to warping away from the print bed and between layers. Despite being a bit obsolete, ABS is still a great choice for parts that have to endure prolonged exposure to the elements.

Pros

  • Chemical resistance
  • Impact resistance

Cons

  • Susceptible to UV damage

Examples of use:
