Anisoprint Composer A3 overview
The Composer A3 is a professional 3D printer produced by Anisoprint. Anisoprint is a 3D printer manufacturer based in Russia and Luxembourg. The Composer A3 was released in 2019 and uses co extrusion 3D printing technology. This professional 3D printer offers a build volume of 420 x 297 x 210 mm.
Anisoprint continuous carbon fiber 3D printing
The Composer A3 uses Composite Fiber Co-extrusion (CFC) technology. CFC technology continuously mixes carbon fiber to the plastic filament that it is 3D printing.
This allows parts to boast high strength and resistance, all while being lightweight. According to Anisoprint, CFC technology makes the material “20 times stronger than simple plastic, 7 times stronger than plastic compounds, and 4 times lighter than titanium”.
Although CFC technology is compatible with various materials, Anisoprint advises that continuous carbon fiber works best with PETG.
Composer A3 main features
- Co extrusion: plastic filament is mixed with continuous fiber in the same composite extruder. Any plastic with a processing temperature of up to 270°C can be used as a matrix. It is possible to control both the fiber’s volume and direction.
- Removable heated print bed: the print bed surface can reach up to 120°C, enabling the use of demanding materials such as ABS, Nylon or Polycarbonate.
- Enclosed chamber: to maintain an optimal ambient temperature.
- Software: this desktop 3D printer comes with Anisoprint Aura, the manufacturer’s proprietary software. The Composer A4 is also compatible with Cura and Slic3r, though only for regular FFF 3D prints.
