The precision of the same can vary between 50 to 350 microns with a maximum speed of 70 mm per second offering a maximum extrusion temperature of up to 250 degrees Celsius. Thanks to all these characteristics, as it has a protective cover and heated base, the Obsidian can work with such different materials such as ABS, PLA, nylon, PETG, PC ...
