Our nGen filament is a great material for visual prototyping. Recently we used nGen to print Coke bottles in various colors:

Design: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1594463

We printed these bottles on the Swiss made Delta Tower with a 0.2mm layer height. The smooth surface and consistency of the filament, make nGen an ideal material to print large prototypes with. These models were scaled up to nearly 30cm.

We printed this model in 6 colors, but did you know that we offer nGen in 17 colors (including a clear one)?

You can find the full portfolio of nGen in our webshop.

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. We work closely with Eastman to bring the best materials to the market. Find more about co-polyesters, what they are and what the advantages are by visiting our previous blog.

Ever since launching late last year nGen has seen a rapid adoption amongst experienced and new users alike. An early review by 3D Printing For Beginners still holds true to this very day. The ease of use and higher temperature resistance (twice that of PLA!) should make this a go-to filament for everybody who wants to get more from their print.

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. Find out how to print with nGen in our handy tutorial.

Amphora 3300 has been made into high-quality filament that exhibits advanced overhang ability, excellent looks, and large printing temperature range—empowering large panel of users to create durable and useful items. With the unique combination of a low processing temperature and an elevated temperature resistance, nGen can quickly print creations that are functional, durable, efficient and attractive.

  1. Hi there.
    I’ve been looking at the materials you supply to the public.
    Wow I never knew there was such an amazing choice of colours and materials.
    Basically I make bespoke headphones on a combination of a wood lathe and a cnc machine.
    I would love to start 3D printing some new designs to offer my customers a really amzing experience
    Of parts options and also one of designs.
    I’ve been steadily reading through ur site and it’s been ever so helpful.
    Ok so I’ve spent like two weeks looking in the net for a 3D printer for the work I would like to produce,and I’ve completely confused my self now with all the different machines that do this and that but the reviews say they don’t do this and that.
    I don’t mind getting my hands dirty at all to build a kit form machine that is upgradable in the furutec,new or refurbished but would appreciate The distributer a good technical help line etc.
    I’ve £500 to spend which I’m gonna have to stick to unless another six months a save a £1000 for the start up
    I would wish to hear from you if only a little knowledge gained.
