For MakerBot ABS Filament
Make snaps, living hinges, threaded objects and more with a ductile, petroleum thermoplastic with elastic deformation properties. Control heating and cooling better with a superflat heated aluminum build plate and a clear, six-sided, draft-blocking enclosure that helps prevent uneven cooling, shrinking and cracking.
Speed your way to demonstrations and presentations with settings that range from fast-draft to finer resolution. Get smooth-to-the-touch surfaces that don?t need sanding, finishing or post-production.
Speed Your Way to New Designs
Accelerate the design process by prototyping right at your desk.
Quickly iterate to verify your designs and catch flaws sooner. Use your own
physical models for collaboration and to bring better products to market,
faster. Save money with the best price/performance in desktop 3D printing.
Where people share their 3D designs with the world. MakerBot Thingiverse is the 3D design community for discovering, printing, and sharing 3D models. See the great 3D models created by Thingiverse super users ? and share your own!
