If you are looking for a tough rigid material that can withstand heat and take a good beating without giving in, then ABS plastic might just be what you are looking for!
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, abbreviated as ABS, is a common plastic that is found all around us, famously used for making Lego bricks.
Its properties, such as high strength and good temperature resistance, makes it a good choice for many applications.
ABS also offers the possibility of a good surface finish.
ABS reacts to acetone, which tends to smooth and polish the surface. It’s also a lot easier to sand ABS.
ABS can be a little tricky to print with.
One issue you may face while printing ABS is that it’s hard to get it to stick to the bed. The printed part tends to “warp” from the sides and the fumes generated can be unpleasant. But we’ll get to all of that soon enough!

Printing with ABS can be a bit hard, but with the right settings, it’s a cake walk.
ABS melts somewhere between 210 and 250 °C. Unless specified by the manufacturer, you should be able to play around with temperature settings in this range.
We find, for example, that 235 °C does a pretty good job.
If you’re running the extruder too hot, you’ll notice a lot of strings created between the walls of your part. If you run it too cold, you might find it under-extruding. Here are some good test prints to try different temperature settings.
The most important purpose of a heated bed is to eliminate warping, so setting the correct heated bed temperature is crucial.
The temperature at which a plastic changes phase from a solid to molten liquid is known as the glass transition temperature (Tg).
You’ll want to set the heated bed temperature justabove that point.
