Introducing Print Your Mind 3D ABS Filament
We are very excited to now offer a new, high-end PLA 3D printing filament. We carry a full line of PLA, ABS, PETG, and Woodfill materials. Our filaments are made in the USA using very high quality standards of +/- 0.05mm in diameter and +/-0.03mm in roundness. A portion of every sale is allocated to our Enviromaker initiatives to support education, innovation, and sustainability.
Tested For Superior Performance
After extensive testing with various Lulzbot and Ultimaker 3D printers, we can assure you that you can print with confidence knowing you can expect quality results. We vigorously tested the material to ensure a top quality performance with the 3D printers we carry.
For the easiest printing experience with the Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker Extended+, we recommend printing our spool holder - Download here.
** NOTE: Due to our spool dimensions, we do not recommend this material to be used with the Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 3 Extended.
What is ABS?
Preferred by engineers and professionals because of its higher temperature resistance, machinability, flexibility and strength. Being a petroleum based plastic, there is an odor given off when heated. For this reason we don't recommend ABS for k-12 educational settings. ABS requires a heated print bed for use, so make sure your printer is suitably equipped before trying.
Compared to PLA, ABS is less brittle and can withstand more stress before cracking.
ABS filaments should be stored in a cool dry place since ABS does tend to absorb moisture. This can lead to poor quality and performance.
2.85mm vs 3.00mm
We often get questions about the difference between 2.85mm and 3.00mm filaments. Usually, most filaments labelled as 3.00mm will actually be closer to 2.85mm in diameter. Our materials are truly 2.85mm filaments which means superior printing performance with Ultimaker 3D printers, as well as those that require 3.00mm such as Lulzbot Taz 6 and Mini. Just remember to configure your slicing software for a true 2.85mm material and you can expect impressive results.
- 1 kg roll
- Vivid color
- +/- 0.05mm in diameter and +/- 0.03mm in roundness
- Manufactured in the USA
- Every roll comes vacuum sealed with moisture absorbing desiccant
STORAGE: Every order comes with one large resealable bag. Use this along with the included desiccant bag to ensure your filament stays dry. It is important to store your filaments in a dry area to avoid moisture absorption when not in use. This will also ensure your filaments are free of dust & dirt to make ensure your next project prints without a hitch.
