Proto-pasta Polycarbonate-ABS Alloy is an incredibly tough material designed for strong, resilient parts. Properties are excellent and greatly improved over standard ABS.
Material: Polycarbonate Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (PC-ABS)
Weight (without spool): 250 g
Diameter: 1.75 mm
Spool size: Loose coil
Heated build plate: Needed
Tips and Tricks:
- PC-ABS is very moisture sensitive. Even when stored in a bag with desiccant, drying in an oven for ~ 1hr at 85C-95C may be required for bubble free high strength prints.
- For best results, print small parts at 260C-280C using a .5mm nozzle and direct-drive spring loaded pinch-roll style extrusion head. For larger prints with good layer adhesion, 270C+ hot end, 140C+ heated bed, and an enclosure are ideal.
