MAKERBOT ABS

ABS Grey 375-0026A (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is one of the most common plastics used in injection-molding, found in many common products such as LEGOS, computer keys, power-tool housings, and automotive parts.

REAL, PRODUCTION- GRADE ABS FOR MANUFACTURING APPLICATIONS

ABS is one of the most popular materials for injection molded consumer products due to its clean surface finish, durability, and heat resistance. METHOD X can print manufacturing-grade ABS without warping and without weakening additives thanks to its 100°C heated chamber.

MakerBot real ABS is a real, production-grade ABS material formulation for creating strong and durable functional prototypes, manufacturing tools, and end-use parts. Unlike desktop ABS material formulations containing damaging modifiers and stabilizers that lead to warping and cracking, this real ABS formulation empowers engineers to achieve part properties close to injection molded parts with high dimensional accuracy, durability, and repeatability. Outpace your competition with better materials and better parts. Only with METHOD and MakerBot real ABS.

The Smart Spool contains all the information that the printer needs, including material type, color, and amount remaining via an RFID chip. This is communicated directly to MakerBot Print, while a built-in desiccant absorbs any moisture exposure during the material loading process, ensuring your material stays fresher longer.
