We have a lot of spools in our print lab. We print a lot on 30+ printers and need our filaments handy at a moments notice. That’s why we use the Filament Duck spool holder a lot! These ones were printed with nGen.

Design: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1862680 

Recently we printed these for our big PLA Economy spools and now we have made a remix of Bold’s original design. We made all these prints with nGen on the Lulzbot Mini in (and for!) our own print lab.

This version of the filament duck fits our regular spool size.

Now you can place your spools anywhere independently of the spool holder on your printer, easily swap them or even store them on this holder so it’s ready to go whenever you need it.

It’s also really usefull when printing with more than one material or color, allowing easy access to each individual spool.

nGen has proven itself to be a very versatile material that can be used for a lot of applications, handy gadgets for the print lab being one of them! It has become our default, all-round filament for printing all sorts of prototypes and prints just have to look damn good!

nGen is an all-round filament which has many advantages over PLA. The temperature resistance is over 80 degrees C and it works on most printers with a heated build plate.  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. You can find more information on our dedicated landing page.

Ever since launching in november 2015 (and later in a big way during the CES Show early 2016 together with Lulzbot), nGen has been a bestseller and a material that has been adopted by users worldwide very rapidly.

nGen is made with Eastman Amphora™ 3D polymer AM3300. With Amphora, items can be created that are more functional, more durable, more efficient, and attractive.

nGen is available through our webshop and our network of distributors and resellers worldwide, as well as Lulzbot themselves.

Keep an eye out towards our sales section, which has nGen filaments on sale on a weekly basis.
