You may have heard before that ‘PLA is easier to print with than ABS filament’. Which is generally true (for most versions of ABS) – but we’ve specially formulated a higher grade of ABS plastic that’s exceptionally low warp. This means no failed prints, cracks or rounded bases of your prints.
What is ABS filament? ABS means Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene when it’s at home. Our formula prints exceptionally smoothly because of the raw resin we use, because it flows so smoothly, and contains no foreign particles or contaminants; your prints finish smooth – no stringing or blobbing.
Our customers frequently tell us how amazed they are at the consistency of their ABS prints with rigid.ink; excellent finish, consistent colour, and strong unwarped prints.
In fact, we even guarantee it. Don’t agree? – send it back! We offer an unmatched free-returns 60-day moneyback guarantee
rigid.ink won’t ever jam your extruder either. That’s because our tolerances are an industry-leading super-tight +/-0.03mm either side of the 1.75mm we promise.
Why is that important? Well fluctuations in your filament can cause your extruder to either over or under extrude slightly. At the least, this can cause thicker or thinner areas in your prints (causing invisible weak spots). At worst, this can cause jams in your extruders. Who wants to risk 3D printer down-time or underperforming end-use prototypes?
Here at rigid.ink we take failed prints very seriously. Buying cheap filament, having to print 3-5 failures before getting something that’s “ok at best” and still worrying about when the next fail will happen? That’s a false economy. Once you’ve used rigid.ink, you won’t want to risk using anything else. We’re the filament supplier businesses’ trust, and for good reason.
So don’t delay. Order a 1KG spool, 10m sample of your choice – or if you don’t fancy getting your wallet out today, no worries. Just order a free sample today.
We guarantee you’ll love it.

Works with all open source filament based 3D printers, our spool size is - 20cm dia, 7cm width, 5.6cm dia spool hole.
Temperatures: These vary printer to printer, and our ABS prints and give excellent layer adhesion in a nice wide print range. Anywhere between 240-260C should work nicely. Usually about 245-255C will be optimal. Make sure your heated bed is at least 80C, but performs best around 90-100C - as normal ABS would.
