Advantages:
✅ easy to print
✅ can print tiny parts
✅ can print huge objects
✅ hard and tough
✅ no warping
Disadvantages:
❌ brittle
❌ low-temperature resistance
❌ difficult post-processing

COMPARISON OF ABS AND PLA
PLA is easier and faster to process under the same initial conditions, but its products are significantly less resistant to higher temperatures (it starts to soften around 60 ºC, while ABS up to 90 ºC). So if you expect higher temperatures for the final product, then ABS is a better choice. ABS prints are mostly matte, PLA prints are rather glossy. PLA material is biodegradable, while ABS material is not, but can be recycled. PLA is more suitable for use in the food industry (*without certification, as the certification, would lose its validity the moment the filament passes through the nozzle).
