Why Use This Material

FDM 3D printed ASA is commonly utilized for general prototyping applications including concept models, early prototyping and functional prototyping. Due to its UV resistance, it is ideal for applications requiring significant UV exposure or those that require long-term durability and weather resistance.


3D Printing Inserts: Types, Installation & Best Practices

When designing robust 3D-printed assemblies, you need a comprehensive understanding of the optimal ways to assemble different components. And when it comes to securing 3D-printed parts, Metal inserts are a superior method as opposed to 3D printing threads, which often result in subpar connections. This article will delve into the various types of inserts, strategies […]
