Possible Replacement For ABS 3D Printer Filament

A Replacement for Stinky ABS? Introducing ‘Zeroment’ Filament by BnK!

Mark Lee | December 9, 2015

If you do a lot of 3D printing, you probably have used ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) before, or been around others who do. While there has been some debate over the safety of ABS, and research is continuing, one thing many people notice is ABS’s stink while it is being printed.
Some people it doesn’t bother, others it bothers quite a bit. I personally fall in the middle, in that it doesn’t give me headaches (as some have complained), but I definitely do not care for its odor. As a result, I almost exclusively use PLA in my lab, but the trouble is that PLA can be too stiff and brittle for some applications, so you need to use ABS sometimes.
