THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ABS AND PLA FOR 3D PRINTING
ABS – It’s strength, flexibility, machinability, and higher temperature resistance make it often a preferred plastic for engineers, and professional applications. The hot plastic smell deter some as does the plastics petroleum based origin. The additional requirement of a heated print bed means there are some printers simply incapable of printing ABS with any reliability.
PLA – The wide range of available colors and translucencies and glossy feel often attract those who print for display or small household uses. Many appreciate the plant based origins and prefer the semi-sweet smell over ABS. When properly cooled, PLA seems to have higher maximum printing speeds, lower layer heights, and sharper printed corners. Combining this with low warping on parts make it a popular plastic for home printers, hobbyists, and schools.
1. What is your filament diameter specification?
For 1.75mm filament, the specification is 1.70mm~1.78mm, normally between 1.7~1.73mm.
For 3.0 mm filament, the specification is 2.95mm~3.05mm, normally between 2.97~3.03mm.
2. What is your idea printing temperature?
It is hard to get a fix printing temperature. In fact it determined by material itself and printer sensor. If the printer sensor is not good is also can mislead the printing job.
As to material itself, the ABS can be printed between 200℃ to 260℃, the idea is 230℃ and this value will little variable due to different color and printer temperature sensor.
The PLA can be printed between 170℃~240℃ and the idea is 210℃. This value will little
