ASA
3D printing

UV stability and high chemical resistance, preferred material for outdoor applications.

ASA is a thermoplastic with properties similar to ABS but with improved thermal, chemical and weather resistance. Perfect for outdoor applications.
Print with ASA

FDM ASA Materials

FDM is the most widely available 3D printing process, mainly used for low-cost prototyping and design verification with very fast turn around times.

Benefits and Limitations

Low-cost
Fast turnaround times

Limited dimensional accuracy
Print layers are likely to be visible
