3DXMAX® ASA is an excellent choice for printing production or prototype parts. This material is more durable than ABS, has lower gloss, and has the added benefit of being UV-stable for exterior applications.

SKU: Select options above Brand: 3DXMAX® Categories: ,


3DXMAX® ASA (Acrylonitirle Styrene Acrylate) is a UV-resistant, famously weatherable polymer. Our ASA has a low-gloss matte finish which makes it the perfect filament for technical-looking prints, especially when you don’t want the high-gloss surface finish often associated with 3D printing materials like ABS, PETG, or PLA.

Benefits of 3DXMAX® ASA:

  • Excellent mechanical and thermal properties (Tg of 105°C)
  • Highly resistant to ultra-violet radiation and sunlight
  • Sturdy and rugged against the weather, ideal for an outdoor part
  • Easier to print than most industrial-grade materials
  • Variety of colors and beautiful, low-gloss finish to make your models pop!

ASA is the Material for Outdoor Use:

ASA’s UV-stability makes it an ideal material for outdoor applications which experience intense exposure to the sun and elements. ASA’s exceptional mechanical and thermal properties – coupled with excellent UV-stability – is why this resin is used in the Auto, Marine, and RV industries.

Typical ASA Applications Include:

Mirror Housings, Cowl Covers, Radiator Grills, & Sensor Housings

1.75mm and 2.85mm +/- 0.05mm in diameter

Recommended Print Settings:

  • Extruder: 235-255°C
  • Bed Temp: 90-110°C
  • Other: Lower the bed temp down by about 10-20°C after the first few layers. The use of a fan at up to 50% may be needed for printers without enclosed and heated chambers.
  • Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep Adhesive and 3DXTECH Polyimide Tape work best for us.
  • Heated Chamber: Recommended, a chamber helps reduce warping.
  • Supports: Water soluble AquaTek X1 USM works great for complex parts.
  • Drying Instructions: 80°C for 4 hours.
