Zortrax Z-ABS

Today I have been testing Zortrax Z-ABS using the default Up Mini 3D configuration and it seems that the result is not as good as using UP filament.

The Z-ABS extruded filament is thinner, so the external surface of the pieces does not glue properly to the internal mesh.

I will try to upload some photos.

I use zortrax filament exclusively too without any issues.
Looks like it may not be hot enough. Did you have the door closed, close the fan and heat up the bed before printing?

I think I have found the problem: the nozzle height was a bit high... I have reduced it and now can print properly with Zortrax Z-ABS, and even with cheap filament like this:

I have also got very good results printing without raft using BuildTak support. :D

Hi Jfmateos, thanks for posting. I heard that Zortrax Z-ABS is good for printing and its providing good quality of 3d print. Recently I got the services from "Iannone 3D" who provides best 3D Printing Services in the New Jersey area.
