LARGE, FAST ASA 3D PRINTERS
Fusion3 designs our 3D printers to print large parts (or many parts) quickly using high-strength, engineering-grade plastics at great quality. This design philosophy ensures that each 3D printer will print ASA filament, ensuring great layer adhesion and little or no warp, faster than the competition.
ASA, chemically similar to ABS, is strong and provides high impact and wear resistance. It also has a high glass transition temperature. The reason to use ASA over ABS is that it is designed for outdoor use as it is UV resistant and also has come chemical resistant, making it able to survive in harsh weather conditions.
Our new EDGE 3D printer allows you to create using high-quality, high strength parts for a variety of different applications.
Large Turbine Blade: ASA 3D Print
Over 6 Different ASA 3D Printer Filaments, Tested & Certified For Fusion3 3D Printers
We have tested and certified a wide variety of ASA materials from leading manufacturers for use in our 3D printers.
Fusion3 receives requests from both customers and manufacturers to test new materials as they arrive on the market. Should they pass our rigorous testing process, we provide optimized print settings to all our customers within our F3Slic3r 3D printing software.
The New EDGE High-Performance 3D Printer
Optimized For 3D Printing Higher-Temperature Materials Including ABS
HIGH-STRENGTH/HIGHER-TEMPERATURE MATERIALS LIKE ASA REQUIRE A 3D PRINTER LIKE THE FUSION3 EDGE FOR EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS
Enclosed, Passively Heated Print Chamber For Optimal Results
ASA Parts Require Continual Heat For Proper Layer Adhesion
The Fusion3 3D EDGE has a large, fully-enclosed print chamber. This enclosure does two important things to ensure great layer adhesion for your 3D printed ASA parts. First, the enclosure passively retains heat given off by the heated print bed and the print head, raising the ambient temperature of the build chamber and further reducing thermal stress. Second, The enclosure eliminates the influence of air drafts, like downdrafts from air conditioning which could rapidly cool the part.

Precision Print Heads For High-Temperature, High-Flow 3D Printing
To print ASA successfully, your print head must maintain a high temperature and high flow rate
Fusion3’s focus on speed and print quality has required us to use high-flow, high temperature print heads that allow for quick heating of material and sustained, high temperatures to maintain a high rate of material flow. Our Fusion3 EDGE maintains this tradition, using our new ANVIL print head. With its surgical steel print tubes, and higher performance PT1000 temperature sensor and heater cartridges, EDGE is able to heat quickly and maintain the fastest flow rates of any 3D printer Fusion3 has ever built, maintaining consistent high heat, ensuring rapid extrusion and strong bonds between the layers.

High Power, Multi-Zone Bed Heaters
A Hot print bed is required to avoid warping of your ASA 3D prints
Fusion3’s 3D printers have always used high-power, multi-zone print beds. This technology breaks the print surface into multiple, discrete zones with different power densities, keeping the entire Fusion3 3D printer’s surface at the same temperature. This helps prevent undesirable cooling of the 3D printed ABS part and warp for properly designed parts.
