Anisoprint Composer A4 overview
The Anisoprint Composer A4 is a professional desktop 3D printer made by Anisoprint, a manufacturer based in Russia and Luxembourg.
This professional 3D printer is able to 3D print strong parts thanks to its continuous carbon fiber 3D printing technology.
3D printing continuous carbon fiber
The Composer A4 uses Composite Fiber Co-extrusion (CFC) technology. CFC technology continuously mixes carbon fiber to the plastic filament that it is 3D printing.
This allows 3D printed parts to boast high strength and resistance, all while being lightweight. The manufacturer boasts that 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 A4 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.
