Clear ABS Filament
We are now manufacturing clear ABS filament and have added it to our ABS filament offering. As the name implies, clear ABS has no pigmentation and offers a transparent tint (color code 000000). Clear ABS is acrylonitrile butadiene styrene that incorporates methyl methacrylate (MMA) monomer and results in a refractive polymer. Airwolf’s ABS is extruded in-house and specially formulated to work with Airwolf machines. As we explain below, clear ABS may be the solution you have been waiting for.
Why does this matter? During recent product development efforts, the Wolfpack has been experimenting with this material and testing with various settings and the results are phenomenal. We are achieving SLA-like results with ABS fused deposition modeling on Airwolf 3D printers. This quality finish is made possible in combination with clear ABS, the EVO additive manufacturing center and APEX slicing software.
Nearly Invisible Layer Lines
Our large FDM 3D parts show no cracks, striation or layer to layer separation. What’s more, due to light-reflective nature, the layer lines are nearly invisible. Finally, an FDM process that takes to manufacturing quality finished production parts! Transparent ABS is clearly the answer to invisible layer lines and better-looking parts
Come and see these parts for yourself and visit us at Booth #5078 in Booth A at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing Show.
