Yes. 3DP’s printers can print ABS…
…. But just because you can do something, doesn’t mean that you should.
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a common thermoplastic material. ABS is amorphous and is known for its impact resistance and toughness. ABS was first introduced in the late 1940’s.
It’s important to remember that 3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process. ABS was originally designed for injection molding and line extrusion. While ABS has been adapted to 3D Printing, there are many more modern materials which may be suitable for your application.
Please consider using modern alternatives like ABS-X or ABS-M in place of pure ABS as these materials have many of the same mechanical properties as plain ABS, but less shrinkage. Or you can look at alternate materials, like Polycarbonate materials or Polymaker’s advanced PLA’s which achieve similar mechanical properties.
If you choose to print ABS on a large format printer, your success will depend on part geometry and environment. A heated enclosure is recommended for ABS printers.
Also, please be careful when printing with ABS and a glass bed: ABS likes to ‘bite’ into glass. Cooling the part too quickly or having your first layer too low may result in broken glass.
