ABS, or (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) for the fancy pants among us... it's the work horse for most 3D printers out there right now - and why shouldn't it be; it's strong, cheap, easy to use and comes in many vivid colors. What makes MakerFilament ABS better than the others?? Well, I'm glad you asked... we do a few things very differently than others do when making our ABS 3D printer filament. For starters we take the time to dry our raw resin to negative 40f to insure that the resin will have zero moisture in it once you get it - this process can take from 4 to 10 hours (each batch) to accomplish and needs very expensive machinery and seems to be an overlooked step due to its cost and time. However, it's important to have perfectly dried resin before starting the extrusion process to make 3D printer filament or you'll find the dimensional tolerance isn't so good and the end product when 3D printed will have a high wrapping problem along with low-resolution do to voids in the filament.

The next thing we do here at Maker Geeks when we are making your ABS Maker Filament is extrude it directly to the end users spool... many will make up large batches on 100-200lb spools and then store these (un-sealed) in open warehouses until the time comes to make smaller spools with them. This is great for productivity however it can lead to some real issues with the freshness of the filament as well as dimensional tolerances over the entire "mega-spool" - Maker Filament ABS is fresh from the extruder to the 1kg spool, right into a vacuum sealer packed with a desiccant so you know that each spool is fresh. Actually, it's more than likely no more than 7 days old once you receive it in the mail; we turn our product over so fast due to the high demand that most batches are being sold in the same week we make them! Now that's fresh filament and that makes a difference!

So; lets talk about price.... all Maker Filament is only $24.55 for 1KG/ 2.2lbs - Think about that price for a second... some retailers charge you $49 for 1KG of their ABS or even $59 for 1LB of PETG and you know what... it's all the same stuff; matter of fact we manufacturer a lot of those same brands for them right here at MakerGeeks as that's a big part of our business, private labeling for other large US based 3D filament and 3D printer companies. So why pay more... cut out the middle man and the fancy packaging and go direct with Maker Geeks and the Maker Filament brand!

As you might know Maker is one, if not the only 3D Printer Retailer in the USA that also makes all it's own filament in house; so we have a lot of flexibility on pricing and the ability to still give you second to none quality (click here to see our process and read about what we are doing here in Springfield, MO) we also source everything from our color to our resin to our spools to even the vacuum seal bags all inside the USA so when we say it's Made in America it is... from top to bottom!

So what does all this mean to you... well for starters it means we care about our filament and take the time and the money needed to make sure it's RIGHT for you and all these "extra" steps show themselves off in the finished product; we see better colors, higher-resolution, less jamming and lower wrapping issues since the filament is made to Maker Filament specifications; give Maker Filament ABS a try today and see for yourself! Hey, if you don't like it... send it back and we'll give you a full refund!!

Maker Filament ABS has been and continues to be used daily here at MakerGeeks HQ for all our 3D printing plus we have a great network of large scale industrial users that order and print with 100's of KG of our filament each week so we are always getting nearly real-time feed back from them as well as our 1,000's of Makers like you! Think of Maker Filament more like YOUR Filament... it's your requests, feedback and input that shape the brand and help us to make the best 3D Printer Filament on the market today!

Maker Filament ABS works great with: 

  • PrintrBot
  • LulzBot (TAZ5 and TAZ Mini)
  • Ultimaker
  • RepRap (Mendel, Huxley, Prusa, Kossel, Rostock)
  • Solidoodle
  • MakerBot (Replicator, Replicator 2, Replicator 2X)
  • FlashForge
  • Wanhao (Duplicator 4, 4X, 4S, 5S, 5S Mini, i3)
  • Leapfrog
  • UP! Plus, Up! Mini
  • and many, many more... basically if it's a 3D Printer; Maker Filament will work in it!! ;)

What Temperature to 3D Print your Filament at?

While each 3D Printer is different and you will need to play around with the temps to get the best print here are some starter temps for you; these are all temperature profiles that are verified and confirmed print temps on the 3D Printers (9 different machines from pre-built D3 and D4 to our own DIY custom Reprap printers) with the actual filament we sell to you... so they will get you 99% of the way there!

230c - 235c

175c - Smooth
210c - Rough

165c (light colored wood)
210c (very dark colored wood)
240c - 265c

How do I get my filament to stick and STAY stuck?

This one is a multi-faceted answer but here are the basics:

  1. Your print bed has to be level!! I mean, spend some time on this one... if it isn't level like a... well... like something that's really level - then your print won't stick and it won't come out looking right.
  2. Next... CLEAN, CLEAN, then RE CLEAN, have a sandwich and a soda-pop and then CLEAN again... use acetone and a lint free towel to make sure your print surface is clean and free from oils and dirt.
  3. If you are having a hard time printing on glass try using some Kapton tape as that will give you a little better stick
  4. If you have a heated print surface... TURN IT ON!! Even when the filament used might not call for it, I always turn on my heat bed (who doesn't like a warm bed!!); even if it's just 40c it will really help. For PLA normally you'll want about 60c and for ABS you'll want 110c
  5. For ABS 3D Printing room temperature really matters... you need to keep your entire build warm; so if you can't print out in a warm room try putting a box over the printer to keep that build area as warm as possible.
  6. Try making "ABS Juice" - just add some scrap ABS filament to a bottle of acetone and let it dissolve and then use that to clean your print surface as normal; the dissolved ABS will give your printer extra STICK OR you can use "Aqua-Net Super Hold" hair spray (must be this brand to work right)... just clean your board as always and then lightly spray the Aqua-Net on the print board and print away (this method is my favorite as it seems to work best for me!)
  7. KEEP trying!! You'll get it and once you do have it dialed in then you have it forever... each printer is different; make sure you make notes of what works and what doesn't for each filament you use and each printer you have. So, in the future when you want to print out that EPIC "Yogi Bear" figurine in Blue you know what to set up your GCODE for.

What is the main differences between PLA and ABS 3D Printer Filament?

The main difference between PLA filament and ABS filament is that ABS is produced from fossil fuels and PLA is derived from biological resources, which makes PLA plastic biodegradable. Check out this 3D Printing Filament Impact Test -- PLA vs ABS vs PETG vs Sledgehammer (click here to watch the videos)!! When it comes to 3D printing the key differences between ABS and PLA are:

  • PLA is a rigid liquid and ABS is a crystallized liquid, meaning that when heated ABS transits slowly from a gel to liquid and PLA transits direct from solid to liquid.
  • ABS is more flexible and PLA is more solid, meaning when stressed PLA will snap sooner.
  • PLA is more glossy looking consumable than ABS (see photos when selecting your material).�

Wow, you have a 1kg spool of filament... SO What! How much actual filament is that??

Big question of the day is... how long is a spool of 3D Printing Filament!? Hummmmm, I think even Blinky the wise old owl might have a hard time with that question but never fear... we have the answer!!

1/kg Spool

PLA 1.75mm

PLA 3mm

ABS 1.75mm

ABS 3mm





... and what does that mean to me and you!! Well, check this out... if you are printing with 3.00mm filament for a iPhone case you need about 2,700mm of filament; for a EPIC Starship Enterprize Model you'll need about 12,000mm of 3D Filament and for a full Kossel 3D Printer Kit we normally use about 50,000mm of filament. Another way to look at it according to MakerBot is that 1 spool of 3D Filament produces about 392 full sized chess pieces. Whoa... that's a lot of chess!!


Don't forget... Print Happy @
Now, go tell 5 friends and 3 total strangers that is beyond EPIC!!! (thank you)
