QIDI ASA-Aero is a type of lightweight 3D printing filament, specifically developed for the fields of aircraft models, ship models, drones, etc. ASA-Aero controls the foaming ratio of the material by adjusting the nozzle temperature during the printing process so that the density of the material extruded by the nozzle can be adjusted within a certain range. With this technique, it is easy to reduce the weight of the model. In the best-case scenario, the model weight can be reduced to 50% of a model printed with ordinary ASA. In addition to that, the matte texture of the printed surface can reduce the visibility of printed layers and thus give a smooth surface finish.

  • On-Demand foaming technology
    QIDI ASA-Aero is a type of ASA filament that will start foaming with the aid of a blowing agent during the printing process. The blowing agent is in an unexcited state in the ASA filament before printing, During the printing process,by adjusting the printing temperature, the foaming ratio of the blowing agent can be easily controlled. The maximum foaming ratio can reach 250%. 
  • Meanwhile, QIDI ASA-Aero retains the original UV aging resistance and high heat resistance of ASA material, which is suitable for long-term use in high-temperature outdoor environments.

Additional Suggestions
1.Since ASA-Aero adops the ‘on-demand foaming’ technology, the filament will continue to expand in the nozzle after being heated during the printing process. Therefore, it will cause unavoidable stringing during the nozzle movement. Even adjusting the retraction setting in the slicing software cannot solve this problem. Based on the above, it is recommended to turn off the retraction setting.
2.Because ASA materials have a high glass transition temperature, a certain ambient temperature(40-70°C) is required during printing to release the internal stress of the printed parts and reduce warping. When printing thin-walled models without any form of insulation, it is recommended to use nozzles with a diameter of 0.6mm or more to ensure the strength of printed parts and reduce shrinkage.
3.When printing with ASA-Aero filaments, please place the enclosed printer in a ventilated environment.
