1. How long have you been using your Asiga 3D printers?
Since July this year.
2. Why did you choose Asiga?
We chose Asiga for the detail that their printers can achieve as well as the reliability of the 3D printer. We use 3D printing as the foundation stage to all our operations. So it is important that we could avoid disruptive printer downtime.
3. Which features do you like most about your Asiga 3D printer?
Very tolerant of files. Composer seems to successfully slice a model even if there are a few mesh errors, this saves time cleaning up 3d files.
Both printers have worked great straight out the box. Asiga allow control over all the print settings and parameters, so you have the option to adjust and produce even better results.
4. What benefits does your Asiga 3D printer bring to your production processes and business?
The speed of prints means output has been greatly improved. We were using our Solidscape 3Z Pro for all our prints, but some builds would take 100 hours+ for large models. The same model can now be printed in 14 hours on our Asiga printers.
5. Are you using a third party resin? If so which one and why?
I use:PlasGRAY seems to have the best tensile strength of any material we have tried, so is well suited to large prints. NextDent Model can produce great details on small parts (and is impossible to photograph well..)
6. If you could introduce a new feature to Asiga's 3D printers or software, what would it be?
I am always looking for the highest resolution possible which I am sure Asiga are working on.
7. Would you add another Asiga 3D printer to your production process?
We have already ordered another Asiga printer which will arrive in a few weeks.
