ABS – When I first got started using my 3D printer, I wanted to use ABS and now that’s all I use. According to the odometer, I’ve run 75 km of filament (99% was probably ABS with maybe 2 rolls of PLA, 1 of PETG and 1 of TPU) There was some learning curve and the main thing was to have an enclosure for the printer. The ABS, especially with these thin walled models would instantly “Frito” if any breeze (say, the room door opening) hits the model.
On this Ta 152 the fuselage looks near perfect; however, even with the enclosure, there is some “oil canning” between the diamond shaped cells on the wings. PLA won’t have this problem, but the ABS is definitely tougher. I’m not expecting perfect cosmetics, I’m still trying to learn to fly.
I use the 3DLapPrint GCODE files, but hand edit them to change the bed temperature to 100C and the nozzle temperature to 255C. That’s all I do differently.
