Up Branded Filament c-13-01, Is this ABS or ABS+?

Post by Nickel1 » Thu Jan 21, 2016 7:10 pm

Hey All,

I came unto a few rolls of white up branded "fila" filament, part # c-13-01. Problem is I can't tell whether I should my Up box to recognize them as ABS or ABS+ (or something else?) Anyone know what the part #'s are for the various up filaments?

Thanks!

Nick

One way you can tell visually is the ABS is a flat, matte color and the ABS+ is shiny or glossy.

Anything starting C-13 is the new ABS+. Anything starting C-01 (700g) or C-11 (500g) is the original matte ABS.

Interesting, I had the same question. My rolls were sold to me as ABS+, but the markings on the reel say ABS (they don't say ABS+). I was wondering if I'd been given the wrong material, which might have explained some of the issues I've been having. But my rolls are marked C-13-01 & C-13-02 (black & white).

But you're telling me they are ABS+, despite being labelled ABS. Anyone who has both materials will get them mixed up unless they are clearly marked, which is left to the end user.

Just remember the ABS (original) is on a 700g spool and the ABS+ is 500g spool

Edit, they have recently changed this, now they sell the original filament in two-pack 500g spools, the newer ABS+ comes as a single 500g spool...

Over a year ago, they said that they would add part numbers when ordering, but they still haven't done this.
