Phaser FPV stocks a wide range of top quality ASA 3D printing filament from the industry’s most reputable brands, including Prusament and Sunlu. For those experimenting with new 3D printing materials and filaments, ASA (or Acrylic Styrene Acrylonitrile) is a popular alternative to ABS filaments.
ASA filaments are ideally suited to outdoor projects, due to the material’s high resistance to UV exposure, temperature and impacts. While ASA can be slightly more difficult to print with compared to other commonly used filaments, the payoff is that your finished product will be much more durable against harsh weather conditions and prolonged sun exposure.
If you are prepared to spend a little more for a higher quality filament that also provides a high glass transition temperature; ASA filament is a superb solution.
At Phaser FPV, we want to help our customers find the ideal items and materials to suit their specific needs. So before purchasing ASA 3D printing filament from our online store, we encourage you to ensure that your 3D printer meets the following requirements for optimal printing with ASA:
We also recommend placing a layer of Kapton tape on the heated bed (or PET sheets if it’s a glass bed) in order to mitigate warping. Given the higher temperatures that are required for printing with ASA filament, be sure to adjust heating/cooling throughout the printing process.
And finally, try using controlled exposure to acetone vapours to smooth out your ASA printing – this technique is referred to as “vapour smoothing”.
