Ultimaker ABS

Ultimaker ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is formulated to minimize warping and ensure consistent interlayer adhesion. ABS material is a great choice for creating functional prototypes and complex end-use parts.


Reasons to Choose Ultimaker ABS

Summary

Ultimaker has optimized Ultimaker ABS to make it easier to print with than other ABS filaments:

  • Good interlayer adhesion, especially when printing with an enclosed front
  • Withstands temperatures of up to 85 °C
  • Achieve aesthetic detail that rivals injection molded parts
  • Dual extrusion with a choice of 10 ABS colors, or with Breakaway support material

Properties

Ultimaker ABS material properties include:

  • Good flexural strength (70.5 MPa)
  • High impact strength (Izod tested to 10.5 kJ/m²)
  • High hardness (76 Shore D)
  • High melting temperature (from 225 °C)

Applications

Ultimaker ABS is a versatile 3D printing material. It can be used for:

  • Visual and functional prototyping
  • Fit testing
  • Tooling
  • End-use parts
  • Concept models
  • Custom components
  • Short-run manufacturing

Compatibility

Ultimaker ABS is officially supported by the Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S3, Ultimaker 3 series, and Ultimaker 2+ series of 3D printers. It is compatible for dual extrusion with the following materials:

  • Ultimaker ABS
  • Ultimaker Breakaway

Example Prints Using Ultimaker ABS

Precise Model Visualization

ABS provides engineers with a low-cost approach for development cycles, allowing them to quickly design, print, and test prototypes before entering full production.

Fit Testing

By 3D printing ABS, you can accurately simulate the form, fit, and function of an end-use part’s performance – giving you confidence in the final design.

Versatile Capabilities

Transition from concept design to manufacturing in days, thanks to the ability of ABS filament to create functional and mechanically strong products.
