ABS and ABS+

Post by steelmans » Mon Oct 12, 2015 3:21 pm

Hi Guys,

I recently bought some 500g Up ABS from

Turns out that although it is in the same same packaging as ABS it is actually ABS+ which is shiny and not as good for raft and support removal. I had this confirmed from Up Support. Apparently the filament is identified by the code starting C-11 for ABS and C-13 for ABS+

Does anyone know a good supplier for the original ABS in the UK? Or even better another ABS that works well on the Up? (I have a temp mod) because lets face it Up stuff is very expensive.

Not sure about suppliers in the UK, but I've had great success using the Zortrax "Z Filament series" ABS (and at a reasonable price too).
Like the Up filaments it's designed to run at higher temps, so it can be used even without a temp mod.

Does the Z Filament separate for the models easily like the original Up ABS used to?
