ASA PRECISION MATERIAL MakerBot Precision ASA is a weather-resistant 3D printing material designed to provide high-performance functional prototypes and end-use parts in demanding outdoor environments. Different from ABS, ASA has a thermoplastic formulation with a high UV resistance, which helps retain gloss, color and mechanical properties when exposed to outdoor elements. Ideal for demanding applications in the automotive, power and utilities, agriculture, oil and gas and mass transit industries. Compatible with SR-30 dissolvable support material.
Smart Spool™ provides valuable information including material type, color, and amount remaining via an RFID chip directly to MakerBot Print, while a desiccant in the spool maintains a low moisture level inside the drawer bay.

Store in the included a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag to avoid moisture absorption from air; long-term exposure to humidity can compromise material quality and performance. Make sure the built-in desiccant is in the spool to absorb any moisture exposure during the material loading process.
