1. How do I choose a high quality ABS filament? How do I understand the relevant technical data?
According to our experience in 3d filament, you should pay attention the flow stability and tolerance of filament. The origin raw material could be assure the flow stability in printing. If the diameter is in 1.70 -1.80 mm( take 1.75 mm for example), It could be printed smoothly with no jam. Regarding to relevant technical date, there are no much usage if you have not special requirement for filament, such as flame retardant or conductive.
2.Can an ABS 3D printer filament be kept in good condition for decades?
No, we do not suggest to store so many years. ABS is type of plastic which could be aged with the time. Meanwhile, ABS material is not UV stabilized. If abs could be kept in good conditions, the properties will keep several years.
3.Will it ever be possible to make a 3D printer filament from cheap and renewable raw material as good as ABS and with the same characteristics?
Well, Hips will be a good idea. Hips filament has similar as abs and almost the same price. The most different is no odor in printing with Hips.
4.Is there a transparent ABS plastic for 3d printing?
Yes, we have clear abs filament for 3d printer. Like the natural of pla, Transparent ABS has high gloss of surface.
