Digital Cubed filaments are manufactured with high-grade materials and quality compounds, minimalising your post-print work and giving you superior final prints you can be proud of saying you printed. High quality and long lasting, Digital Cubed products are created with a lot of detail in mind from the materials we use all the way through to the carbon footprint on our Earth. Our MasterSpools are included with all Digital Cubed spoolled filaments and not only come in eco-friendly packaging but also allow you to re-use your spools over and over again giving you greater flexibility with colours and materials. It is easier to store our spoolless filaments as they do not have the spools – it also helps that our spoolless filaments are cheaper than regular filaments!
ABS is a commonly used thermoplastic as it is lightweight and can both be injection moulded and extruded. It has better mechanical properties than PETG and less brittle than PLA and handles higher temperatures. ABS is well known for being the print material Lego and other kids toys are made from. Although ABS can be a trickier print material to work with than the likes of PLA as it tends to be more sensitive to temperature changes and fluctuations and so we recommend using ABS in a full enclosure with a heated build plate, this way ensuring the printing and cooling of your prints happen at a stable temperature.

In general, ABS is a very good material to print with if you are looking for a print material designed to a stand a good amount of wear and tear, be strong against the elements (weatherproof), withstand more heat, pressure and stress than the likes of PLA and so this makes ABS great for applications where a lot of strength and durability is important.
Due to the nature of how each layer bonds as it is being extruded, your prints with ABS will have a professional appearance and offers a less intensive post-print process on your designs. Generally speaking, this is an easy material to work with, offers a large print temperature window and excellent long-term storage durability.
Digital Cubed ABS 3d pritner filaments adhere to tight tolerances giving you superior prints each and every time. What is more, as we have worked hard with our factories and manufacturers to ensure every aspect of our filament range is perfectly tuned to give you the ultimate smooth printing experience and reduced post print cleanup. Our ABS range print smoothly with no bubbles and offer a deeply vivid final print colour that stands the test of time.
You will find when you use our filament range, we have worked very hard with our manufacturers to ensure the composite materials and tolerances for our filaments are as tight as possible allowing you to create more complex and imaginative creations. You will be able to experiment with a wide range of support and infill structures for your prints and even save filament in the process.
We are proud of our MasterSpool as it allows us to do our bit for the environment and help enhance your printing experience at the same time. Once you switch over to using a MasterSpool you will be amazed at the convenience of storing and switching our your filament materials and colours and you do save a lot more when you become part of our eco-system. When we first launched our spoolless range in the UK (and mind you we were the first to launch the spoolless range) our clients often asked why we price our spoolless range the way we do and the simple answer is that we have to. Contrary to common belief, it takes the same or more “effort” to wind a spoolless roll of 3D printing ABS filament than a spoolled. We still think going spoolless is the best way to print as you do save a tremendous amount when you become part of the Digital Cubed eco-system, we reward loyalty and give you great opportunities to explore and increase the number of materials you print with and the type of final prints you create.
