General Tips and Tricks when printing with ABS filaments

The printing temperature guideline for printing with Form Futura Premium ABS filament is 235°C to 256°C. It’s advisable to use a heated print bed when printing with ABS, as it has a tendency to warp. Print bed temperature in the range of 80-110 degrees C (176 f to 230 f) Please note ABS will tend to bend under too much heat. It’s a good idea to turn down the temperature upon the print bed after printing a few layers. A good first layer adhesion is of the utmost importance in obtaining the best results for your prints.
