The two most important features of ASA are its inherent UV stability and high temperature resistance of 96C. This material is well suited to be used for long lasting outdoor applications.

Parts printed with ASA can withstand prolonged exposure to UV light and retain toughness and durability for a much longer time then ABS. Therefore ASA is a really interesting alternative to ABS.

ASA is more susceptible to warping compared to PLA or PETG type filaments. Especially models with a large footprint can shrink and warp during printing, but compared to ABS in most cases less severe.

Apart from using a large brim and heated buildplate of 90-100C (or higher if your machine is capable) we can also advice the following. Print a tall skirt around your model to reduce cold air flow around the printed model or print inside an enclosure for better control of the environment temperature.

Printing Advice

At colorFabb we have a well-equipped 3d printing studio with many popular 3d printers. Our grade of ASA has been tested using various 3D printers.

Cooling fan

To reduce warping we would advice to use the least amount of cooling possible. Also for best mechanical performance try printing with the least amount of cooling needed, for optimal layer adhesion.
