High performance material for high performance hardware.

Heated bed and all-metal hotend recommended!

Proto-pasta Polycarbonate-ABS Alloy is an incredibly tough material designed for strong, resilient parts.  Properties are excellent and greatly improved over standard ABS. 

Processing is more challenging.  For best results, a heated bed is required to control warpage and improve layer adhesion.  Cross-sectional area should be minimized.

  • Available in 1.75 mm and 2.85 (3) mm diameters, black or natural color
  • 500g is on a 8" diameter spool

PC-ABS is 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.

In our experience, good results are achieved when printing small parts at 270-290C on a heated bed. For larger prints with good layer adhesion and minimal distortion, an enclosure is ideal.
