CoLiDo have delivered some of the most exciting 3D printing solutions available today and their range of PLA and ABS filament is nothing short of perfection. The printer filaments are supplied in an excellent cartridge type spool for smoother operation and a tidier looking workstation.
The latest range of PLA and ABS filament was developed alongside US experts with CoLiDo noting "the filament is the key element to precision output". Using high quality, consistent diameter tolerance filament helps reduce some of the issues with 3D printing such as nozzle clogging or running material etc. The filament also meets REACH standards, being free from harmful or hazardous materials.
ABS filament is a fantastic plastic for mechanical real world use prints where a durable item is required. It has some give under stress making it perfect for multirotor frames and gears. ABS also has a higher melting point making it more suitable for some applications.
For printing with ABS it is recommended to have a heated print bed or Kapton tape base for correct bed adhesion. ABS can also have a slight odor when printing so a well ventilated room is recommended, please note that it has no odor when the print is finished.
Printing with ABS is slightly harder to set-up unlike PLA, once you have mastered the set up you can expect to produce consistent prints every time. Other popular uses for this material are R/C spare parts, building blocks and children's toys.
