Loading ASA onto my Ultimaker 3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Loading ASA onto my Ultimaker 3

I print with ASA a lot and when I load filament the choice on filaments does not include ASA.  So I generally choose nylon so the print head is nice and hot


Is this the right thing to do?


Is there a firmware update that includes ASA as a profile so that I do not get warnings

    Typically ABS has similar printing profiles as ASA, so that might work as well - depending on the ASA you're using.

    What you could also do, is download a marketplace ASA profile suitable for your UM3 (maybe you're using one of these actually?). https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/materials?machine_variant=Ultimaker 3&page=1&polymer_classes=asa


    Hope this helps!
