Composer A4

Anisoprint is an Russian producer of high-quality 3D printers and creates FDM and FFF equipment. The range of 3D printers offered by the company provides composite 3D printing i.e. the machines can print components made of constant fiber-reinforced materials whether carbon glass, glass or balsate. The most popular model are one of them, the Composer A4, a desktop 3D printer, which is the most affordable, offering an output of 297 x 210x 140 millimeters. It is able to print continuous fibers with greater strength than traditional plastics and is lighter than aluminium.

The principal properties of Composer A4 are the following:

The Composer A4 ( is the most economical 3D printer within the range of the manufacturer, with less print capacity than its counterpart one, that of the Composer A3. It’s an open printer, meaning it works with every kind of plastic available. What makes it stand out in its ability to work in conjunction with the composite substances, specifically that made of continuous fibers. It is actually built on CFC, the Composite Fiber Coextrusion (CFC) method that is based upon FFF. It is a Composer A4 can create parts that are made from carbon or basalt fibres.

The machine comes with the 3.5 inch touch screen as well as a heated build plate that can reach 60degC and two extruders which can reach 270°C and is therefore suitable for a variety of thermoplastics. It integrates Anisoprint’s slicer that is proprietary, Aura, which makes co-extrusion, i.e. 3D composite printing possible. It is fully compatible Cura as well as Slic3r’s slicers however only for the extrusion process , which means it is not equipped with fibers. Aura allows the user to fully control the position that the fibers are placed.

Composer A4 Composer A4 will allow you to make end-of-use components that are more durable than those made from ABS for instance, and remaining light – twice as light as metals, depending on the maker. An excellent alternative to metal additive manufacturing which is more expensive and more complicated to learn.
