How to 3D print with Digital ABS

Digital ABS™ and Digital ABS2™ materials simulate standard ABS plastic, combining
high temperature resistance and toughness. Parts printed with these materials have
an impact resistance of 65-80J/m (1.22-1.5 ft lb/in) and an initial heat deflection
temperature (HDT) of 58–68 °C (136 – 154 °F) upon removal from the printer. A higher HDT, 82–90 °C (179–194 °F), can be achieved after thermal treatment in a
programmable oven (see section E).

These properties make Digital ABS and Digital ABS2 suitable for printing parts that
require high impact resistance, strength and dimensional stability. With enhanced
Objet Studio™ software (version 9.2 and higher) Digital ABS2 offers increased rigidity
and durability for thin elements.

Make parts in Digital ABS and Digital ABS2 on Connex 3D Printers using RGD515
together with either RGD535 or RGD531. This yields printed parts in a choice of two
colors, green and ivory.

This Best Practice describes recommendations and tips for achieving optimum quality
and enhanced mechanical properties when printing Digital ABS parts.
