ABS filaments, on the other hand, are prone to cracking and warping, and therefore t is a must to use a heated printing bed for a successful print. It might be difficult for the novice to use the ABS filament since the feature is not available in most of the printers used at home.  It also has an unpleasant smell which makes it uncomfortable for most users.

ABS filament calls for a 3D printer with a heated bed for the printing process to be successful as the ABS plastics tend to shrink when cooling. The ABS filament is sensitive to temperature changes and without a heated bed; the bottom of the print will be cooling at different rates causing a warp or cracking. The ABS bed temperature should range between 100°C and 220°C for the extruder, and the layer should be 0.22mm to bring about satisfying results. It is important to bake the ABS filament to do away with moisture as well as enabling it to stick.

ABS filament is commonly used for items that are frequently handled, dropped, heated and requires mechanical properties due to its features and strength.
