ABS Red cartridge produced by 3D Systems is specifically developed for use in the CubeX and CubePro range of professional 3D printers.
ABS is a strong plastic and very durable, with a higher glass transition temperature than PLA. This makes it an ideal 3D printing filament for parts requiring detail and additional strength for post processing or testing. It works best with smaller sized parts.
Whilst the properties of ABS create a tendency for warping when printing large parts, the heated enclosed chamber in the CubePro range of desktop 3D printers helps to reduce this effect due to a more consistent temperature at which the ABS prints and cools.
CubeX and CubePro cartridges are easy to load and have a microchip to tell the printer if sufficient material is available before starting a print. The cartridge casing also provides protection for the filament to reduce the risk of crossing and jamming, and minimises its exposure to the environment, helping to prolong the life of the filament.
Compatible with CubeX (CubeX Single, CubeX Duo, CubeX Trio) and CubePro (CubePro Single, CubePro Duo, CubePro Trio) range of professional 3D printers only.
Due to the large variation of monitors, video cards, operating systems & Internet browsers and the effects each has on each other, the colours on this page may not exactly match the materials.
