ASA (acrylic styrene acrylonitrile) is a thermoplastic like ABS, but with improved heat resistance and durability. ASA printed parts are strong and rigid with exceptional UV resistance, incapable of yellowing, making them exceptionally useful in exterior or industrial settings. ASA is also water-resistant, has strong chemical resistance, anti-static, and highly impact resistant.

Overview

3D Universe Terrafilum ASA Filament

3D Universe Terrafilum ASA (acrylic styrene acrylonitrile) is a thermoplastic like ABS, but with improved heat resistance and durability. ASA printed parts are strong and rigid with exceptional UV resistance, incapable of yellowing, making them exceptionally useful in exterior or industrial settings. ASA is also water-resistant, has strong chemical resistance, anti-static, and highly impact resistant. For successful ASA printing, a heated bed is needed due to its high glass transition temperature.

ASA is becoming a very popular and commonly used filament. It’s as versatile as ABS but with some printing benefits – reduced odors and tighter resolutions. There are many versatile ways to use ASA, but its strength is found for outdoor projects. Products made of ASA 3D printer filament are extra tough and can survive high-heat conditions. When printing, users should remember the high printing temperatures may lead to warping as products cool. Proper bed adhesion is essential, and we recommend Magigoo Original for that purpose.

Recommended print settings:

  • Print temperature: 240-260C
  • Bed Temperature: 85-110C
  • Cooling fans: Off
  • Closed environment: Preferable
  • Bed adhesion: Magigoo Original

Note that the 3kg spools will require the use of external spool holder. We recommend making a "lazy-susan" style spool holder so the spool can lay horizontally and unwind smoothly. Consider printing this model using the 51mm adapter that's included.


What Makes 3D Universe Terrafilum Materials Unique?

Like you, we also love our planet. That’s why we have painstakingly considered the environmental impact our products could have on our environment. We determined that using recycled plastic for 3D printing is a fantastic solution. We are happy to provide our clients with a recycling program that ensures the maximum amount of material that might otherwise be discarded as waste, is returned to us where it is recycled and repurposed into more of our wonderful product.

All 3D Universe Terrafilum materials include the following features:

  • High Compatibility – Compatible with most FDM Printers, consistent diameter, dimensional accuracy +/- 0.03mm
  • Long Prints – Consistent coil, even melt for better layer adhesion, smooth nozzle, and extruder performance
  • Superior Construction – Materials are USA produced using sustainable formulations
  • Excellent Performance – Each batch is test printed to ensure quality controls and color consistency

For Best Print Results, Try Magigoo Original

Magigoo is an easy-to-use 3D printing adhesive designed to provide excellent print bed adhesion for a variety of 3D printing materials. Apply Magigoo to your unheated print bed. When the print is finished, wait for the plate to cool down and your prints will pop right off the bed! Magigoo also helps to prevent warping, even with more challenging materials like ABS and ASA.

Key features include:

  • Compatible with ABS, PLA, PETG, HIPS, ASA, and TPU
  • Available in 50ml and 120ml sizes
  • Easy application
  • Easy release
  • Easy cleaning (just use water)
  • No smell
  • Non-toxic
  • No additional tools needed
  • Easy to transport
  • Nicer print finish

Tips for Successful 3D Prints

Tips for Successful 3D Prints

There are so many materials to choose from when 3D printing... Some of these materials are more challenging to print than others, but with the proper approach, you can be confident of a successful print, regardless of the material you're using.

Next to using high-quality filament, good print bed adhesion is often the key to avoiding failed prints. Our friends at Magigoo have spent hundreds of hours testing all kinds of different materials, identifying the optimal settings for each to ensure the best possible results. All of this research has culminated in two valuable resources that we are happy to share with you here. Don't be deceived by the name of the first document. This is not just a manual for Magigoo adhesives. It's packed full of great tips for ensuring successful prints.
