Material

ABS

Known for its toughness, durability, and affordability, ABS is one of the most widely used thermoplastics in injection molding and is used for applications such as automotive components and LEGO bricks. Printed ABS has up to 80% of the strength of injection-molded ABS, making it highly suitable for concept modeling, form-, fit-, and function testing, tooling, and end-use parts.
