A blend of Poly-Carbonate and ABS plastics, this material is widely used across all industries for its toughness and versatility. Parts printed with PC-ABS exhibit a good level of flexibility and exceptional mechanical properties. Applications include batch manufacturing, jigs, working prototypes and electronic enclosures.
Models made with our PC-ABS material are easy to sand and post process.
Thanks to the quick turnaround provided by FDM technology, this blend of plastics is especially suited for fast product iterations within the automotive, aviation and electronics industries as well as full batches of parts and cases.

Vertical features are often overlooked but they play a very important part in whether or not your print will be successful and how strong the final result will be. We always recommend designing walls with a thickness of at least 1 mm with a minimum viable thickness of 0.6 mm.
In order to achieve the best results we recommend a minimum thickness of 0.6 mm for unsupported walls.
Pins and columns are often used in electronic and end product casings. For best results avoid designing pins with a diameter smaller than 3 mm.
TIP: Adding a chamfer or fillet at the base of your pins will result in much stronger parts.
Embossed details should have a minimum line thickness of 1.6 mm and a depth of 0.5 mm or higher.
Engraved details require a minimum line thickness of 1.2 mm and a depth of at least 0.3 mm.
When designing an assembly of parts we suggest leaving a clearance of at least 0.4 mm around moving/sliding parts.
Our PC-ABS requires supports in order to print overhanging areas.
It's important to keep this in mind during the design phase since the surface in contact with the support material will exhibit a rougher finish compared with the rest of the model.
