The granddaddy of filaments, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), is one of the most popular filaments on the market today. Used for making a variety of objects due to its strong build and slight flexibility, ABS is great, if you have a heatbed. 

From tools to toys, phone cases to fan blades, ABS is easy to print and glue with – even if the fumes from the printing process are a bit strong for some people

The Pros and Cons of ABS and PLA

I am not going to tell you which one you should use, as I don’t know what you are going to be printing. But, I can tell lean you in the right direction by providing you with the pros and cons for each one. If you really enjoy the pros and can deal with the cons, then that filament is your answer.

ABS PLA
Pros Very sturdy and hard
More flexible – easier to work with
Suitable for machine parts
Increased lifespan
Higher melting point
Can be printed on a cold surface
Shinier and smoother appearance
Higher 3D printer speed
More rigid features
More detail
Translucent colors
Heatbed not always necessary
That sweet smell
Cons More difficult to print
Heatbed required
Prone to cracking if cooled too quickly
Not suitable for using with food
That not so sweet smell
Can deform because of heat
Less sturdy
More brittle
Bent area turns white
Not suitable for using with food
Lower melting point

When to use which filament

Great, so you know the details for each type and how it makes it either good or bad to use for certain conditions. So finally I’ll be helping you out by giving you the times when you should use ABS, or when you should be focusing just on PLA.

ABS PLA
When to use it If the object is going to be dropped often (like tool parts).
If the object needs to cope with temperatures over 60ºC.
If you’re a 3D printing enthusiast – as much as possible.
Can sometimes be used in outdoor areas.
Perfect for gifts and prototypes.
When to stay clear If you don’t have a heatbed .
If you want to print large objects in a place where there might be wind or changes in temp (cracking and splitting).
If the place you use doesn’t have good ventilation (smell could get bad).
If you want to make objects that might be dropped often (too brittle for tool handles).
If the object will be used in temperatures greater than 60ºC (sagging can occur).
