ASA is a lot like ABS. It starts with A, but unlike the other, doesn’t end with BS.
Actually, ASA is cool. It prints like ABS, it’s tough like ABS, but from what we’re told, it is considerably more weather resistant than ABS. Leave it in the sun and it won’t yellow quite as much.
- Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate, for you Breaking Bad fans
- Print @ 240-255ish, with fan set a bit lower than ABS
- Bed temp @ 110, much like with ABS
- Basically – think of it as ABS, but better for your outdoor products, or prints with significant exposure to heat and light (like a lamp shade)
