Production-grade Thermoplastic

Now you can build consistently high-quality parts, with exceptional UV stability and the best aesthetics of any FDM® thermoplastic.

ASA is poised to become the most popular all-purpose prototyping material for Stratasys Fused Deposition Modeling production 3D printers.

Matching or exceeding the mechanical properties of ABS, ASA may be your new favorite general prototyping material. Its UV-resistance makes it especially suited in production parts for outdoor commercial and infrastructure use. And its wide selection of colours and matte finish makes it ideal for attractive prototypes in consumer sporting goods, tools and automotive components and accessories.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service

Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer

Tough long-lasting parts

FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.

FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.

With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.

Gain new possibilities

TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.
