    Premium 3D Printer Filament ABS 1.75MM 1kg/spool, Crystal Clear

    Get outstanding 3D printing results when you use 1.75mm ABS 3D Printer Filament from Monoprice!

    ABS is one of the most commonly used filament types in 3D printing. It has a high tensile strength and good overall toughness. It has a low density and is softer than PLA, which means lower weight and lower cost when printing large models. Hardness is such that no white dot appears when bending.

    This 1 Kg spool features a thickness of 1.75mm ±0.10mm, with a roundness variation of only 0.05mm. It has a nominal processing temperature of 230° C (446°F). Thickness and roundness factors are laser measured at the factory to ensure accuracy over the entire length of the filament.

    The negatives of using ABS is that it can give off a white smoke with a concentrated odor. It is best to ensure that the printing room is well ventilated when using ABS.

    Additionally, it has a high moisture absorption rate. Depending on the overall humidity level of the printing environment, an opened spool can absorb enough moisture after a couple of days that high temperature printing could cause bubbles or pocks in the extrusion. It is therefore recommended to not open a spool until you are ready to print and to store any unused portion with with silca gel and/or an active dehumidifier to reduce the amount of moisture it can absorb.

    Dont waste your money

    • The Raven,

    Pros: Its not PLA...

    Cons: VERY brittle. Not "crystal clear" after print (its just the nature of printing and light refraction). Its much more temperamental then the other ABS plastic. Does not make as clean of prints as the normal ABS.

    I have tried several times with this and the prints just turn out like garbage. There seems to be a little more shrinkage then with normal ABS, and it causes a little more warping. Prints just dont come out nearly as sharp as from other ABS...

    Too Brittle, and not exactly 1.75 diam, more like 1.85 and jams

    • Chris Andrews,

    Pros: Lightening fast delivery

    Cons: too brittle, easily broken. Not exactly 1.75mm diameter as advertised, and definitely not premium


    I too have given up trying to print anything with this, as it is too brittle. It snapped during several attempts to print. the filament is also not exactly 1.75 diameter and measures more like 1.85 to 1.88 and jams my extruder head, causing hours of cleanup and replacement.

    Brittle / Does not work in Makerbot

    • noloco,

    Pros: very clear

    Cons: As with other people that have reviewed this filament, its very very brittle, it snaps very easily. I have found it completely unusable, by the time it prints a bed, it either snaps inside the heat head or on the wheel. I have not been able to finish one full print yet.

    I would not recommend until they come up with a new version of this product.

    Pros: Prints clear'ish

    Cons: Too Brittle

    I have given up trying to print a large part with this, as it is too brittle. It snapped during several attempts to print

    Fewer advantages over PLA

    • Anonymous,
    •  New York, NY 
    • 7/5/2014 8:05:52 AM

    Pros: Good spool wrap quality, no air bubbles, works as advertised.

    Cons: Harder and more brittle than other ABS filaments I have worked with - whatever chemical modifications were used to make it transparent seem to have made it a bit less flexible.

    Makes a really annoying buzzing sound when it rubs against things - things like the feed mechanism for my extruder.

    This is high-quality filament, but the increased hardness of this variant diminishes the advantages of using ABS over PLA. Still less brittle than most PLA, but I'm going to stick with normal dyed ABS for now. The finished parts are also not really that transparent - more translucent - because all of the tiny ridges from each layer reflect/refract light everywhere.
