techABS Black by CEL Robox is a high quality 3D printing material. ABS is a strong plastic and very durable, the same material as used in drain pipes and hard suitcases, with a higher glass transition temperature than PLA. This makes it better suited for parts requiring additional strength for post processing or testing.
techABS has been formulated to reduce shrinking and warping. The material prints at a lower temperature and requires a cooler bed to adhere to than standard Robox ABS. As well as having a lower shrink rate, techABS filament also processes more smoothly.
Robox techABS filament is supplied on a SmartReel which is fitted with an eeprom which stores data on temperature settings, print speed, diameter and the amount of material that has been used. AutoMaker will read the information on the reel and change to the settings accordingly.
Robox techABS SmartReels are available in a range of colours in 1.75mm diameter. Each reel is sealed in a reusable zip lock bag with a sachet of silica gel to control moisture.
Each Robox techABS Black spool contains approx. 750g of filament.
Due to ABS’ inherent properties and structure, it can make it more prone to warping or cracking, particularly when printing large parts, so we recommend it for smaller prints.
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.
