Makerbot® METHOD X ABS Filament

Production grade ABS filament can withstand temperatures up to 183°F

Makerbot® METHOD X ABS Filament Features

  • Finished part dimensional accuracy of  ± 0.2mm (± 0.007in)1

  • For METHOD X 3D Printer

  • 1 x Spool of ABS Filament

  • Strong, Rigid Material

  • Smart Spool

Optimized for the MakerBot METHOD X 3D printer, this spool of black True Color ABS Filament is designed to bring your printed projects to life with strength and precision. Designed for manufacturing tools and end-use parts, the production-grade ABS filament can withstand temperatures up to 183°F and features a 348,000 psi tensile modulus for high rigidity with a tensile strength of 0.806 psi. The Smart Spool includes an integrated RFID chip that transmits information to the printer, including the material type, color, and amount remaining. The spool also has desiccant, which helps to maintain low moisture levels inside the drawer bay.
