Material-Details: ABS Datasheet


ABS is a thermoplastic such as all FDM materials.
ABS is very well suited for functional parts, since it 80% having the properties of an injection molded part.
Especially the surface finishing by chemical polishing, and the good bending properties make ABS a popular Material.
ABS is used a lot in the industry. So car bumpers are for example made from this material.
For very large or very flat parts, ABS tends however to the so-called "warping" (bend) and to stress cracking.

Advantages & disadvantages


  • the Stable and yet flexible (suitable for clamps, etc.)
  • Abrasion resistant
  • High gloss Polish
  • Detailed in the printer
  • High Stability


  • Low resolution FDM printer
  • Temperature-sensitive
  • Voltages at large or
    thin-walled parts
  • Susceptible to solvent
  • Tends to "warp & quot;

  • It is calculated that is actually consumed in the component only the material.

Typical usage

ABS is used mostly to manufacture end usable parts.
Function parts housing up to busts, ABS is a real Alroundtalent.


ABS is produced in so-called FDM process.
FDM means literally & quot; Fused Deposition Modeling & quot;.
FDM is one of the simpler methods of 3D printing.Manufactured components exhibit
visible layers on (layers). The advantage of this technology is the pressure in a
high variation of materials and the direct use of technical
Plastics. The material is genuinely applied and thus differs
most other procedures, with materials with approximate properties
work. Another advantage is the possibility of closed cavities.
FDM is not suitable for small parts, because they overheat.

The procedure:

The model is broken down into layers of 0.1-0.2 mm.
Now, a plastic wire is pressed through a heating nozzle and a viscous
State puts. Controlled pressure head is now leaving the contour of the component a CNC
and while applying the desired layer thickness.
Washable support structures from alcohol prevent a hang from overhangs.

Additional information

  • ABS plastics not for the contact with foodstuffs is approved as all FDM.
  • FDM parts should not be without additional protection in outdoor.
  • Our ABS contains no plasticizers.
  • Our ABS is UL92-A Certified

The surface of your part is determined by the technology and the chosen material. Therefore, we offer several post-processing steps. This affects the cost, but also the quality of your model.

The natural surface of ABS is perfect if you want your model just as functional or demonstration prototype. So you get the material and procedures based on the surface we can make because nothing else as to print your part, to remove the insulators and to send it to you.


Available colors:

Black, white, semi-transparent, green, grey, blue, Orange, red, yellow, pink, Brown, gold

Chemical polishing

Chemisch Poliertes ABS 3D Druck

ABS material directly onto glossy can be used as single FDM polishing.
This is achieved by a chemical polishing procedure.
Your part is sanded and then swung through a hot mist of chemicals. The chemical is environmentally friendly and is not bound by the plastic also. < br > The device will arrive so no residue when friends.
The "fog" briefly breaks the surface of the component and brings them to the 'flow', thus it smoothes itself non-contact.

Another big advantage of this Polish is that the stability and abrasion resistance your part greatly improved them!Another big advantage of this Polish is that the stability and abrasion resistance your part greatly improved them!

What is to be observed on polished models::

  • Models can be polished until a size of at least 10 x 10 x 10 mm.
  • Positions which are not pre sanding bar can be slightly wavy..
  • The glaze slightly modified the dimensional accuracy of the parts.
  • Edges rounded off greatly by this Polish.
  • Small details can disappear when the Polish
  • Polished parts look like painted.
  • The polishing service requires 2 extra days to the indicated delivery time.
  • Price: Polish 30% of the part as an additional cost.

Grinding and sand blasting (polishing)

.Geschliffene have no high-gloss surface models in ABS. You have a slightly rough but very smooth surface.
All parts are sanded by hand and then sandblasted. For this reason, may it be your part in hindsight will be rejected if it is not to edit by hand.

What is to be observed on polished models::

  • Need a minimum of 10 x 10 x 10 mm
  • Only by hand-to-reach areas can be polished.
  • Post processing will take on all surfaces around 0.2 mm material. Plan something extra wall strength.
  • Small details can disappear during this process..
  • The polishing service requires 2 extra days to the indicated delivery time.
  • Price: Polishing costs 30% of the part as a supplement.

Painted models

Painted 3D printing


Of course, you can also paint ABS 3D models.
Here, the quality and RAL color can be chosen. The basic version of the painting is a simple �Spray Paint�.
This means that your component is easily sanded and then painted. Stage of construction, and the similar are still easily recognizable.
The highest quality level is the paint in premium (car paint) quality. For this purpose must be booked "polishing".
Your part is sanded, polished, gef�llert, wet sanded and painted.

  • Need a minimum dimensions of 10x10x10mm
  • Price: 30% of the part price for base coating. Polishing service Additionally for premium (+ 30%).
  • Painting 2 Design specifications must be set extra.



Coating, 3D printing


ABS parts can also make a wonderful coating.
For this purpose, your model is sanded, and then coated with your desired material. In this case, a coating with Gold or silver is possible.

  • We can only coat the parts of 10 x 10 x 10 mm up to 600 x 600 x 600 mm. Larger parts on request.
  • Handling flat rate �12 / order
  • Hand galvanizing
  • Order thickness from 1 �m
