Printing with ABS

After getting comfortable printing PLA, we decided to buy some ABS and nylon.  I opened up the ABS roll today and after printing a few test cubes, I loaded up a Spocktapus. Why Spocktapus again? First, I've printed it enough times to know what it's supposed to look like and what it's not supposed to look like. Second, it will annoy Colin (they're like Tribbles around here).

This was printed at 0.25mm layer height at 230C. It curls a lot more than PLA, which already curls too much and the smell is a lot stronger than PLA. Here's a video and final shot.

Not the best print ever, but I just wanted to crank this out quickly.
