PC-ABS is a blend of polycarbonate and ABS plastic which combines the strength and heat resistance of PC with the flexibility of ABS. PC-ABS exhibits high impact strength and thermal resistance, making this material an ideal choice for demanding engineering environments. Applications include snap-fits, end-use components, jigs and fixtures, concept modeling, and testing for form, fit and function.

How Does Fused Deposition Modeling Work?
FDM is a filament-based technology where a temperature-controlled head extrudes a thermoplastic material layer by layer onto a build platform. A support structure is created where needed and built in a water-soluble material.
