Description

Today, 3D printing has many uses. Prototyping, design, models or toys.

The new nGen filament by ColorFabb offers the ideal printing materials for each individual application.
nGen filament has functional properties and offers surprisingly good print outcomes.

The glass transition temperature is 85 °C, more than that of PLA filaments.

nGen is ideal for users who require flexibility and a wide printing temperature range. The filament is also well moulded at low temperatures.

More information

How to print using nGen:

To achieve the best results, it is important to always adjust the Slicer settings in accordance to the respective printing material. The most important settings will be explained below.

Heated bed:

nGen is best printing material to use on heated beds. It is always ideal to get close to the glass transition temperature. Therefore the printing bed should be heated between 70-85 °C.

Printing Temperature:

Printing temperature of 220 - 240°C should be used for normal settings such as 0,2 mm layer height and 50 mm/s printing speed.

Cooling:

If printing is always processed on the cooling mode, it is possible that single layers could detach. If this is the case, the cooling setting should be decreased.

Bridging:

We recommend reducing the speed when bridging. The cooling setting can be set to 100%.

Retraction / Withdrawal:

The retraction settings of PLA should correspond to those of nGen. However, it is possible that these settings made be need to be adjusted slightly.

The most popular technology used for 3D printing is FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling). A heated nozzle (hot-end) melts the plastic wire, layering the melted parts.
