Functional prototypes and end products,
Not Suitable For
Fine-detail models with smooth surfaces,
ABS-M30 is 25 to 70 percent stronger than standard ABS, making it ideal for concept modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools and end use parts. With significantly stronger layer bonding than ABS and greater tensile, impact and flexural strength, ABS-M30 parts are stronger, smoother and have better feature detail.
Material Spec Sheet
Fused Deposition Modeling is used to build your design with this material.
The principle is simple. You can compare it with a hot glue gun into which you put sticks of glue. The glue is heated up until it melts and is then pushed through a fine nozzle in the front of the glue gun.
In an FDM printer, a long plastic wire is used in place of glue. It is fed from a spool to the nozzle where the material is liquefied and ‘drawn’ on the platform where it immediately hardens again. The nozzle moves to drop the material at the correct location, drawing your model line by line. When a layer is drawn, the platform lowers by one layer thickness so the printer can start with the next layer.
When your model contains overhanging sections, the printer needs to build supporting material. Since the material of the model cannot be deposited in the air, the support material prevents it from falling down. This support material is fed through another nozzle.
Afterward, when the model is put into a bath with special soap, the support material dissolves.
