The Anisoprint Composer A3 is a professional carbon fiber 3D printer made by Anisoprint, a Luxembourg-based manufacturer of continuous fiber 3D printing systems.

This Composer A3 is able to 3D print lightweight, complex shape composite material parts with superior mechanical properties for end-use production.

Anisoprint continuous carbon fiber 3D printing

The Composer A3 uses Composite Fiber Co-extrusion (CFC) technology. Anisoprints patented technology for extruding matrix and continuous fiber through one extruder, offers the most flexibility for composite manufacturing.

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”.

The machine combines a unique extruder composition, consisting of two thermoplastic filament feeders and a third feeder for composite fibers. Used in combination, they can print parts from PLA, PETG, ABS, Nylon and PC that are reinforced with composite carbon fibers (CCF) or composite composite basalt fiber (CBF).

Composer A3 main features

  • Co-extrusion: plastic filament is mixed with continuous fiber (e.g., carbon fiber, glass 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.
