Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) is a thermoplastic that you can 3D print and has many properties that make it ideal for engineering and outdoor applications. ASA is basically the new and improved cousin of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), which is more widely known and used (such as Lego). ASA has many of the benefits of ABS without some of its drawbacks.
ASA, similar to ABS, is a little difficult to 3D print because it’s sensitive to heat while being printed. However, after printing, ASA parts are very heat-resistant and durable. ASA prints are also rigid and strong, and can even be more so than the same parts made from ABS. Unlike what many users notice with ABS prints, ASA won’t turn yellow when left outside.
