ABS BCN3D Filaments
Stiff / Impact resistant / Heat resistant
29,95€ – 79,95€
ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is one of the most common technical materials in several industries around the globe. Its an engineering material which combines rigidity and resistance to impacts. It is the ideal material for technical applications and moving parts.
Traditionally a challenging material to print with FFF printers, it has been re-formulated to ensure good interlayer adhesion and to reduce warping. Our grade allows for excellent dimensional accuracy and high durability.

Use support materials to expand your 3D printing horizons
Our hosts and 3D printing specialists Álvaro and Jess give us the lowdown on all the different benefits that arise from using support materials, and all the different ways in which they can be implemented.
Hyperloop CHF’s train prototype with 3D printed parts goes for gold at the Hyperloop pod competition
We followed Hyperloop CHF’s journey of the creation of a high-speed subsonic train prototype to the 2021 Hyperloop Competition in Valencia. Using a BCN3D Epsilon W50, the team could quickly and efficiently 3D print molds and end-use parts in a variety of different materials.
The BCN3D Epsilon W27 helps Agri.Builders’ Pherodrones fly high
As an alternative to pesticides, Agri.Builders has developed drone attachments to transport rings that release hormones to prevent damage to almond trees. The partnering of their BCN3D Epsilon W27 with their Smart Cabinet ensured a smooth-running of their printing process and presented them with an array of materials to choose from.
Your Extensive Guide to the Properties of 3D Printing FFF Filaments
This white paper dives deep into physico-mechanical properties and impact, heat and water resistances, by evaluating the performance of every material in the BCN3D portfolio.
Materials for 3D printing & In-depth on fibre-filled
Which is the strongest 3D printing material? And… is stronger always better? In this webinar, Materials Engineer Dario Destro will walk you through the different 3D printing filament types currently available in the market and their properties, with a special emphasis on fiber-filled materials.
KAV is Bringing Bespoke Helmets to the Masses
Every year there are 3.8 million concussions from athletic endeavors. However, the six on the hockey team of Whitman Kwok’s son are what compelled the creation of KAV. Foam-based helmets, the only option in hockey and most every other sport, provide limited protection against rotational accelerations while injection molding constrains helmets to a limited number of sizes compromising fit and safety. KAV’s mission is to elevate athletic performance and protection with highly engineered, bespoke helmets.

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.
- Store it in an airtight container with desiccant
- Enclosure is required for BCN3D Sigma and Sigmax printers
- Once the part is printed, remove carefully the piece to avoid chipping the glass. The removal of the object is easier if you just apply water on the glass
Product design end-use partsFor the DAYNA motorcycle components in contact with batteries or electronics, such as this light bulb grab, ABS was implemented for its structural resistance, thermal resistance, and low static charge.
Car logo positioning template jigThis template allows the operator to position the sticker of the vehicle's nomenclature in the correct place. This template has a neodymium magnet inside that allows the part to adhere firmly to the sheet metal.
Lower drill positioning toolThe biggest part you can find today in Nissan, this tool is composed of 5 connected parts with a total longitud of 1 metre. This tool indicates the drill placement to the operator. The tool incorporates some bushings so that the part lasts longer and does not damage the plastic, which in this case is ABS.
Customized toolingThis fixture made from ABS serves to ensure that this dimensional metrology machine has retained the exact measurements between the design and manufacturing stages.
Product design prototypeWhile other rovers contain metal conveyor belts, the Clearwater team was looking for something more lightweight. In total, ¾ of the rover is 3D printed: the hulls in ABS for its toughness against sea conditions; ABS for the springs and bridge; TPU for the flexible, rubbery bristles; and PLA for some more rigid parts.
Product design prototypeAfter a prototyping process using PLA, for the final version of this layered grill and cutter, ABS provided the rigidness needed for the cutter.
High thermal and mechanical resistanceABS is perfect for creating parts that are very mechanically resistant, with high thermal resistance properties, as well.
Highly-functional and mechanically strong partsABS is ideal for parts under high mechanical stress with and attractive matt finish.
Validate prototypesIts great mechanical and thermal behavior make ABS the ideal material for testing prototypes before entering full production.
