The Ideal Build Material for Your MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer

MakerBot ABS material is the best, most consistent, and most tested ABS material for your MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer.

All MakerBot material is manufactured to produce the highest quality 3D prints and is trusted by leading companies and institutions the world over, thanks to state-of-the-art material manufacturing and quality control standards.

  • When used with MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printers, MakerBot ABS material helps produce higher-quality prints, reduce material problems, and minimize downtime
  • Because it’s more flexible than PLA, MakerBot ABS is great for mechanical designs or ones that have interlocking or pin-connected pieces
  • Compared to PLA, ABS has a longer lifespan, is more impact resistant, and has a more matte look and finish

MakerBot ABS material has a high melting point, so it’s suitable for machine or car parts

MakerBot ABS material is soluble in acetone, so you can “weld” parts together with just a drop or two or smooth surfaces and create a high gloss by brushing or dipping full ABS pieces in acetone

MakerBot ABS material adheres well to Kapton tape on a heated build plate
