ABS is a widely used engineering thermoplastic with high durability. Printed ABS has up to 80% of the strength of injection-molded ABS, making it highly suitable for functional applications. This material is opaque and available in several color options. 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.
