In Nancy’s own words: “This is a beautiful, geometric wallet with 3D printed “fabric” that folds at the hinges. All these little hinges are printed in place so minimal assembly is required.” You can find more information on the YouMagine page by clicking here.
Every side is printed separately in one piece with one color with nGen filament. We printed the Mixee Wallet on our Ultimaker 2+ with a 0.12mm layer height.
You may notice that we print a lot with nGen and there is a good reason for this: It is a fantastic material to print with! This next generation 3D printing filament was launched a year ago and has become an all-round filament which we use a lot in our print lab. It works extremely well on a lot of platforms and has shown to be extremely popular with our user base.

nGen is made from Eastman Amphora™ AM3300 3D polymer. Like colorFabb_XT, colorFabb_HT and nGen_FLEX, it is part of Eastman’s Amphora range of copolyesters for 3D printing. Find more about co-polyesters, what they are and what the advantages are by visiting our previous blog.
nGen is a low-odor, styrene-free material uniquely suited for 3D printing enthusiasts, particularly those who need the flexibility to print within a wide processing temperature range. With nGen you will have good flow properties through the printer nozzle—even at lower temperatures than some other polymers require. These properties make nGen more workable at a wider breadth of temperatures, producing reliable results and resulting in less waste.
