This is great stuff, i'm sorry for the people who had difficulty with it; i;m not sure what they did. first of ABS is acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, which is a copolymer. That is to say that its a blending of three different types of materials, acrylonitrile a poisonous liquid that provides a vinyl backbone of the filament. butadiene a compressed liquid used to solidify rubbers, styrene a monomer derivative of benzene used in many commercial plastics. So ABS ( acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is a mixture of materials as such every manufactures recipe is going to be different its going to have qualities. For this one specifically i find if i lay it out at the standards 230 c with 105 c heated bed works well. the biggest problem i've had with this stuff is getting to to stick to the bed and stay stuck to the bed. there is an easy solution though take a chunk of the filament dissolve it in acetone and make a slurry, i use my left over trimmings as i trim the end every time i switch out of the left over brim or left over supports. place that on the bed and let it heat up and bake on to the bed. instant stick wont pull off doesn't warp, at least in my experience. i haven't had any clogging yet i have my printer set to 100mm print speed but everyone s printer is different in what their heat block can handle. i personally really like this stuff is it top of the line filament? No but then again i'm not paying 60 bucks a kilo, and you don't need to pay 60/kg for good filament. this stuff is cheap cost with with good results in my experience, if you willing to slow down and check your setting; it works well. an i mean this is mid range stuff good prints at reasonable prices. its great for the average joe if your the professional, your lively hood depends on it or you don't have the time to slow down and check print settings, ect..... then yeah i might look for a different filament;for me if a starter abs is what i'm looking for ,and abs is harder than pla, i wouldn't shy away from this. i'm quite satisfied with my purchase and plan to do it again
