Printing right in one try – efficient printing of engineering filament if you are NOT a print engineer yourselfUltrafuse filaments homepage
Since the rise of 3D-printing ABS was seen as an ideal material due to its versatile nature and large operating window. Unfortunately, it never lived up to the expectations because of the challenges with bed-adhesion and warping. Therefore PLA is still the most used 3D-printing material. But PLA has limited mechanical properties.
As of now tinkering and trial-and-error belongs to the past when printing ABS, thanks to Ultrafuse ABS Fusion+ filament, the ABS grade which is engineered for 3D-printing.
Ultrafuse ABS Fusion+ is easy to print engineering material. 3D-printing operators will spend less time tinkering and more time to utilize the potential of your 3D-printer. This allows for a more efficient print process.
To top it all off ABS Fusion+ adheres to water-soluble support. No more hassling with chemicals, just dissolve your support after printing in water. The 3D-printing community knows ABS as an unforgiving material but due to the unique properties of Ultrafuse ABS Fusion+ you can realize a high success rate with improved dimensional stability.

Project reference Ten Kate Racing
Description of the project & challenge: Their pursuit of flexible and faster manufacturing of parts led to collaboration with us. Our objective was to create a material that meets the requirements for high-speed motor racing and is easy to use in a desktop 3D-printer.
Ten Kate Racing: “Material performance is very important for us. 3D-printed parts on our race bikes have to be reliable. We have to take into account rapid changing conditions in temperature, mechanical loads and vibrations. For me it is also important that a material is easy to process. We are a racing team and I am not a full time 3D-printing operator so it must be easy to use.”
With Ultrafuse ABS Fusion+ we provided an engineering filament for Ten Kate Racing which is reliable and easy to use.
