This Bilby3D ABS filament orange is bright but not fluro, often referred to as safety orange.
This filament has been extensively tested and works well with standard ABS settings.
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a standard Engineering plastic such as used in car bumpers and helmets. It is known for not being as brittle as PLA, but not as flexiable than PET filament.
It has the drawbacks of a higher shrinkage rate than PLA (can lead to prints curling or splitting in extreme cases) and generally requiring a heated bed on your 3D printer.
We have tested this on over 10 different types of 1.75mm extruding machines with heated beds such as Makerbots, FlashForge, UPs, Printrbots and many more.
Diameter: 1.75mm (+/- 0.2mm)
Melting Point: 210 - 250 degC
