Comments:

This material is really easy adjustable for any kind of settings, even if you are lowering the temperature it still be in a good smoothness, but the only problem is the printing speed.

Color: White

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Stryene) for 3D printers offers a high resistance with a good surface appearance and it has the better relation of quality/price. Requires adhesive coating despite working with a hotbed temperature of 70ºC. Using hair spray to stick it on the glass is highly recommended

Evaluation of material characteristics
Please evaluate how was working with this material compared with other materials 1 - very hard, 5 – considerably easier
Which of the technical parameters had the biggest influence on material printing quality?
Print speed
To what extent printing speed influenced printing quality? 1- speed had considerable influence on quality; 5- speed had no influence on quality
Please name what you believe are the 3 most evident characteristics of this material tough, fragile, elastic, solid, soft, other – name them
It is solid, soft, and tough material.
Describe material smell during the printing process
None
Describe material surface characteristics by physically feeling and evaluating the part.
It is smooth with low spikes on it, which is not sharp, as for makerbot filaments.
How easy is this material to polish (with sandpaper, file or other)? 1- very hard, 5- easy
Please note what tool was used for polish test?
Sanpaper
Can this material be glued? (Yes/No)
No
If yes, please note what sort of solvent, glue was used?
Notes
This material is really easy adjustable for any kind of settings, even if you are lowering the temperature it still be in a good smoothness, but the only problem is the printing speed.
