ReFuel™ ABS 

Recycled ABS filament from out-of-spec materials 
Colors Vary
No Color Selection Available

This is the same material as our regular Workday/Pro ABS Product Line. We've taken our ABS scraps and out of spec material, transition material and cut off waste and ground it into pellets that we can use to make filament! It works great, prints great, and is otherwise equal to our normal Workday/Pro ABS lineup. (Note: Wholesale discounts are not available on ReFuel products.)

Color: Color will vary on this product. It is made of just about every color we make and the darker colors seem to take charge in the process. The first batch is a bit of a dark purple, but depending on what we have reground, it could come in any shade of color in the future. Colors will vary from grayish-white to nearly black. No color selection is available. 

Packaging: ReFuel comes vacuum-sealed with desiccant in a plain brown box with minimal labeling. We do not add the spool spec chart to our ReFuel products. 

Size: To keep this product simple, we only plan to offer it in 1.75mm 1kg spools. We don't expect to have enough scrap to make 4kg spools and 1.75mm is the most popular size. 

ABS is used for high strength applications and is a petroleum-based material product, so it holds up well in a variety of environments. ABS requires a heated bed and works best with an enclosed print area. ABS can produce some off-gassing so it is recommended that you use it only in a well-ventilated area.

Technical Information


Our tester had this to say about Pro ABS:

    "The filament is incredibly easy to print, no modification or settings needed to be changed from PLA [except for print temps]. There was no brim or warping observed in the models, which is truly bewitching comparison to experience with previous ABS filaments in [my] printer." 

    Additional Filament Information 

    All 3D-Fuel 3D printer filament is manufactured in our own production facility located in Fargo, North Dakota or in Moville, Ireland (depending on customer location). We have complete control over the manufacturing process and are able to ensure consistent quality for every spool.

    Diameter Tolerance:
    Variable diameter can cause big problems in your 3D printer. We use a multi-axis laser measurement system to control our filament diameter and ovality in real time during production. Every spool has the diameter and ovality measurements listed right on the box.

    Packing Information:
    A full 1kg (2.2lbs) of Re-Fuel Pro PLA plastic filament arrives on an easy-to-use plastic reel and is vacuum sealed with a desiccant packet to keep out any moisture.

    Test Printing:
    The 3D-Fuel test lab features multiple brands of 3D printers including Raise3D, MakerBot, LulzBot, FlashForge, and more. We 3D print what we manufacture to ensure that our filament provides the absolute best quality possible.
