This excellent ABS filament is durable, offers ESD protection and beats nearly every other ABS filament available on the market in terms of print quality and mechanical features. Though it bears a hefty price tag, it makes up for it due to the quality it delivers.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Suitable to be used with electronic equipment
Due to its properties, ABS is a very appropriate material to use for prototyping enclosures for electronic equipment and this filament is no exception. It was specifically designed to provide high-grade protection from ESD (electrostatic discharge) that can damage sensitive electrical components. It can prevent charge from building up on its surface, useful if the printed pieces come into contact with sensitive microelectronics
Pro Suitable for hot and humid settings
You can use this filament in standard ABS applications, such as for printing objects and parts that need to withstand hot and humid environments.
Pro Stronger than the majority of ABS materials
This ABS is tougher than the majority of ABS materials out in the market. Its tensile strength (maximum stretching pressure the material can withstand) is 42 MPa, according to its datasheet. Material property data website MatWeb has stated that the highest-quality ABS withstands at least 40MPa, and 3DXSTAT’s filament goes beyond this value.
Pro Filament's package provides good protection
The packaging of this filament is outstanding and protects the filament from external factors very well. The product comes packed in a very stylish 3DXSTAT box that, besides protection, gives it a premium feel. The spool itself is sealed in vacuum film with a silica packet.
Pro Can be used with virtually any standard 3D printer
You can use this filament with pretty much any standard 3D printer, since it's available in the two most commonly used diameters: 1.75 mm and 3.0 mm. Unlike other filaments, 3DXSTAT offers both sizes for the same price (1.75 mm is usually more expensive).
With a minimum price tag of $90.00/kg of filament, most 3D printing enthusiasts will have to consider this a serious investment for their high-end 3D printers. The price is somewhat offset by the fantastic quality of the filament, though.
Con Only available in black
Black is the only color available for this filament, which may be disappointing for some users. 3DXSTAT seems uninterested in adding more color options for their filaments.
