# Good profile for slicing ABS in Slic3r?

Does anyone know of a good slicer profile (i.e., an .ini file.) for Slic3r for printing ABS for a Prusa i3 MK3S printer?

• Welcome to 3DPrinting.SE! I'm not sure I understand your question? What's wrong with using Slic3r as the slicer for ABS? The slicer is fairly filament agnostic, meaning, it doesn't care. You as the user setup the parameters for the filament when you slice. The slicer then creates the g-code which your printer can interpret. There are presets within the slicer which can be used, then tweaked if needed for your specific needs. Again, this is filament agnostic to the slicer. Can you clarify what you actually want?

• So you are after a profile for Slic3r. A profile that works for one printer may not work for another printer. Basically, as such, this is not a good question for SE. Every slicer is able to produce printer files for ABS, it is usually the printers that have difficulty to print ABS properly because of its high tendency to warp because of the large shrinkage. If you rewrote the question to explain what your problems with printing are, people could answer you what slicer settings you could change to produce better prints. ABS has a good alternative that can be printed as PLA; look into PETG.
