MatX is the logical successor to ABS. With less warping, higher flow rates, and better chemical resistances, MatX is the perfect upgrade to make usable printed parts. MatX is also stiffer and glossier than ABS, making it perfect for showing off your functional 3D prints.

What are the environmental requirements for printing MatX?

My understanding is that ABS prints best in a controlled environment around 104 degrees C. Is the same true for MatX? Will I need to build a box around my printer to avoid breezes or environmental temperature variances, or is MatX more forgiving like PLA?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Jaycen,

The reason for our switch over to MatX (ASA) over ABS was specifically for the reduced risk of warping, meaning you don’t need to create super controlled environments/ build chambers, whilst maintaining very similar properties.

Ultimately with any filament it is recommended that the printer is not situated next to an open window or a door that regularly opens/ closes to avoid such breezes. But for a standard indoor environment you shouldn’t have any issues. With all filaments we reccoemnd using the correct bed temperature and using a bed adhesive such as Dimafix or a glue stick.
