ABS is made out of oil-based resources and it has a much higher melting point than PLA plastic. It’s also stronger and harder. It is an economical plastic notable for its low degree of shrinkage and warping.
Cheap filament usually extruded at lighter tolerances and with materials of questionable origin. For 1.75mm and 3mm filament, the outer diameter should not exceed +/- 0.1mm, for example,+/-0.05mm is OK. Anything over these tolerances could jam the extruder of the nozzle’s inner chamber, which is machined to exacting tolerances. Additionally, the use of out of tolerance filament will cause over or under extrusion, which is the major cause of blobbing and voids in the finished print. This is because the slicing software used to prepare the style for printing calculates exactly how fast to extrude based on a constant filament size. Our filament quality is very good with tolerances: +/-0.02mm.
Moisture laden ABS will tend to bubble and spurt from the tip of the nozzle when printing; reducing the visual quality of the part, part accuracy, strength and introducing the risk of a stripping or clogging in the nozzle. Our ABS filaments DO NOT have air bubbles.
1. 1x 3D printer filament
2. 1x leather box
1: PLA/ABS dual color filaments net weight: 1KG/2.2lbs, gross weight: 3.08lbs.
2: Flexible and PVA filaments are only used for short-range feeding 3D printer.
3: PVA filament should be kept in sealed, and PVA filament is only used as a support material. So, PVA must be used in double nozzles.
4: Print speed should be controlled in the range of 20-40mm/s while using wood、flexible or PVA filaments in ceae of print failure.
- Compatible with all FDM 3D printer such as Makerbot, Mendel, Prusa, Huxley, BFB series, RepRap, Rapman, Solidoodle etc
- Avaliable in both 1.75mm and 3.00mm diameter. Filament Diameter Tolerances: +/-0.02mm
- Air Bubbles: Zero!
- All the filaments should be placed in dry and ventilated environment to keep. And PVA filament should be kept in sealed

Researchers Benjamin Lehner, Dominik Schmieden, and Anne S. Meyer from the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands, have co-authored a paper exploring an inexpensive method of 3D printing bacteria.
The research demonstrates great potential for producing a range of smart, sustainable, and naturally biodegradable materials that don’t produce toxic waste.
An added challenge: keeping materials alive
In their research, the TU Delft team from Department of Bionanoscience first produced a bioink by mixing E. coli strains into an alginate-based hydrogel. The challenge was then to 3D print this on a commercial 3D printer – the one chosen for this study is CoLiDo DIY 3D printer, retailing at around $300.
At the temperatures and stress of typical 3D printing, the E. coli ink would be destroyed. So, the researchers swapped out the extruder for a pipette to deposit the layers.
With this bacterial 3D printing system, the researchers then demonstrated consistent deposition of the bioink in the shape of a ring.
After 24 hours under constant light and incubation, the E. coli survived: confirming the efficacy of their system.
On the bacteria’s survival, the authors note,
Our printing technique is inexpensive, straight-forward, and can produce bacterial structures of a wide variety of three-dimensional shapes without requiring printing scaffolds, excepting structures that contain internal bridges or enclosed hollow spaces.
Our technology is well-suited for the use of wild-type organisms or synthetically modified bacteria, which could be designed to carry out new combinations of microbial reactions to create a great number of different types of materials.
E. coli – the key to future smart materials?
First discovered in 1885, E. coli is a pretty versatile and well-documented bacterium, making it ideal for experimental use. With a team of microbiologists at MIT, artist and researcher Neri Oxman used the bacteria to culture different colors in the Vespers series of 3D printed death masks.
E. coli is also used in synthetic biology at the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Maryland, where researchers are harnessing bacteria’s powers to make microscopic devices to enhance the performance of soldiers.
Glowing bacteria is also being explored for its ability to reproduce the filters in LED screens, and has the potential to produce flexible devices.
A straightforward approach for 3D bacterial printing from TU Delft was published online at PubMed.gov on the 22nd February 2017.

Pune, Maharashtra — (SBWIRE) — 02/20/2017 — Over the last two years, the polymer 3D printing industry has been in a state of tumultuousness marked by dozens of new competitors entering the market, partnerships for development of materials, and development of new print technologies. All of these and more have combined to create a whirlwind market that, in spite of so much activity and investment, has struggled to maintain its growth pace from 2012 through 2014 as customers have backed off purchasing in the traditional segments while adopting a ‘wait and see’ strategy. The demand for additive manufacturing in general has perhaps never been higher, but challenges associated with such rapid evolution in polymer and plastic 3D printing have suppressed growth in the face of historic interest in 3D printing at a professional level.
As the global chemical and polymer suppliers of the manufacturing world move into position to exert more influence over the increasingly integrated 3D printing industry, market change appears imminent. Meanwhile, the commercialization of disruptive new print technologies such as those from Carbon, HP, Rize, and more all ensure 2017 will be a pivotal year.
Opportunities in Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing – 2017 are the third generation of the world’s most comprehensive analysis of polymer 3D printing technology. In this new edition, market analysis is segmented by print technology market -as each major polymer print process settles into its own roles and established applications, our analysis has deepened to the specifics of each driving print technology and associated materials.
Utilizing purpose-built proprietary 3D printing market models, research is able to present detailed market forecast data on thermoplastic filaments, powders, photopolymers, composites, and more utilized in popular print technologies of material extrusion (FDM, FFF), polymer powder bed fusion (SLS, Multi Jet Fusion), photopolymerization (SLA, DLP, CLIP), binder jetting, and more.
All available materials for primary polymer print technologies are analyzed and forecasted, including market revenues as well as material shipments, by industry and geography, over the next decade. Opportunities in Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing – 2017 will provide exceptional value to business development professionals and internal market strategy teams for the global chemical and polymer industries, as well as polymer 3D printer manufacturers, print service providers, and developers of polymer 3D printing manufacturing solutions.
