White ABS from UP in 700g reels gone!

Post by mr6k » Mon Nov 23, 2015 5:43 pm

In the UK I am having a hard time finding 700g reels of genuine UP ABS. All that seems to be available is 500g reels.

Has UP stopped making 700g reels for UP Plus etc

cheers

You can use Zortrax Z-ABS filament, it is the same as the OEM UP! and Afinia filament!

Great bit of advice there. I assume it runs at 260 deg? Does it have the same support removal properties as the C-01 ABS?

Peter, I have found a place where you can buy UP 700g C-01 ABS for £14 GBP. Not sure if it should be common knowledge so of you want to know PM me.

There are now two types of Tiertime ABS 1) Original ABS in a matte colour and ABS+ a much stronger material but support removal can also be harder to remove.
