With nGen we offer an all-round 3D printing filament for every day use. One advantage over PLA is its glass temperature (of 85 degrees C, double that of PLA). Another is the special chemical make-up of the base material, Eastman Amphora™ AM3300 3D polymer, which results in a good melt stability. From pellet to filament to 3D print, nGen retains its material properties very well, meaning more stable results with less waste of time and material. Read more on what nGen is. Earlier this year we launched 6 more nGen colors – all of them transparent.
Below are some of the recent prints we made:

All the prints were made in our print lab on the Ultimaker 2+. We used the following settings:
- Nozzle diameter: 0.8
- Layerheight: 0.5
- Nozzle temperature: 240C
- Bed temperature: 75C
- Extrusion multiplier: 1.4
- Vase mode: on
nGen works extremely well on the Ultimaker printers. Find out more on the standard settings we recommend here.
Back in March we added 6 transparent colors to our nGen portfolio:
- Green Transparent
- Blue Transparent
- Yellow Transparent
- Orange Transparent
- Violet Transparent
- Red Transparent
The colors were added to a rich mix of 17 colors, bringing the total to 23 colors of nGen filament you can choose from and ship from stock! With nGen Transparent colors you can print objects that have a great shine and stand out from the crowd, even from far away.
nGen is a true all-round material suitable for most day to day 3D printing activities. At the core of its reliability is the special chemical make-up of the Eastman Amphora™ AM3300 3D polymer, which results in a good melt stability. From pellet to filament to 3D print, nGen retains its material properties very well, meaning more stable results with less waste of time and material.
It was launched almost 3 years ago and has been a hit ever since. This is not without reason. It is true all-round material suitable for most day to day 3D printing activities. Its chemical make up ensures a very consistent quality. An advantage over PLA is its elevated temperature resistance: 80 degrees instead of 45 degrees, so even in hotter climates (or a hot summer day) the material holds up extremely well. Below is a comparison chart of several of the Amphora based filaments compared to commodity materials like ABS and PLA.
