All new colorFabb glowFill

Team colorFabb

Today we’re launching a new filament, colorFabb glowFill. This filament will literally make your work shine!

During the day it’s a beautiful creamy color which prints to a perfect smooth finish. In the dark your prints will start to glow like you would not believe. A special highly concentrated phosphorescent pigment is matched with our PLA/PHA compound, so it’ll print just like our other PLA/PHA 3d printing filament. So charge up those 3d prints for some glow in the dark fun!

    very interesting! My question is about the glow’s duration for each cycle and over time.
    I think that it depends by dimensions (infill 100%) and day charge, obviously… could we have a valuations?
    thank you!…and conitnue this way!!!! 🙂

      Hi Luca,

      we don’t have actual values of glow intensity and decline over time.
      But from our own testing I can tell you that we have 3/4 year old prints that still glow all night when sufficiently charged.
      Printing things with high amounts of infill does really help with this as you said.

      If you try (and measure) this, let us know 🙂

    Till now I’m unable to print it with retraction on my Ultimaker2, because the hobbed bolt flattens the filament completely. Do you print without retraction?
