Cura ABS Profile

Printing ABS can be a real pain. Below is a printing profile for ABS filament material. In general:

  • Nozzle temp: 255 degrees C
  • Bed temp: 110 degrees C
  • Turn off cooling fan
    • Solves layer delamination since layers will cool too fast and ABS shrinks more than other plastics.
  • High print resolution
    • Helps increase layer adhesion strength
  • Use infill setting (20% – 25%)
    • Reduces thermal stress as a result of using less material
