Hi

i saw that ASA is recommended for things such as the fan shroud, which got me thinking would it be a plus to print everything in ASA since it is a tad bid lighter? or does ASA have some other problems that would make this a bad idea?

thanks

I printed all the parts with ASA many months ago for both my MK3s and MK2.5s and never had had a problem.

The enhanced properties of ASA do come at a cost.
So spend the money when it's needed, resort to cheaper (not lesser quality !!!) filament types for the majority of your other prints.

An even better option is Extrudr Greentec Pro (Carbon version if you can use a 0.6mm nozzle and non-carbon if you can't).

HDT: 115°C
VST: 165°C
Printing temperature 230°C, smooth PEI sheet @60°C - really easy to print.
and the most rigid filament I have found in all my research.

I do not think that has the heat protection of ASA parts.
