My first @ColorFabb #nGen_LUX test print, this layer hiding sparkly look in combination with the material properties of #nGen is quite a nice combo. Printed on a @Ultimaker 2+ with 0.8mm nozzle and 0.2mm layers. pic.twitter.com/xaTkyUqdQI

nGen_LUX is a unique development based on our best-selling co-polyester nGen, made with Eastman Amphora AM3300 3d Polymer. The excellent clarity of the base AM3300 makes this material uniquely suited for the extremely rare pigment used in nGen_LUX. The material uses diffuse reflection to scatter light in all directions. For the eye it’s nearly impossible to spot layering, even at 0.2mm layerheight. nGen_LUX allows users to print visually appealing models without the need of post processing. nGen_LUX features all the characteristics of our regular nGen, good chemical stability, elevated temperature resistance (85C) and thus allows users to print creations that are functional, durable, efficient and attractive.
It is now available in 5 awesome colors:
nGen_LUX is our new standard in how a 3D printed object can look. It is the filament for the users who wants to bring something extraordinary their work. It is the filament that needs to give that added value. The “Lux” not only stands for luxurious – which is definitely the look of the prints – but also refers to the unit of illumination used worldwide. And light is what makes this filament truly special. Believe us when we say that the photos don’t do the prints real justice…
nGen_LUX is the first special filament based on nGen and the second one in our range of co-polyesters after XT-CF20, our carbon fibre enforced filament based on colorFabb_XT. It can be printed with the very same settings as nGen.

nGen Lux … a *wonderful* filament! I’m using it successfully for our Breath Flute project (www.BreathFlute.com) and have a whole flock of flutes for use in workshops …
One question: is nGen Lux any more abrasive (or significantly more abrasive) that, say, PLA or regular nGen copolyester? I have some nozzle wear after 1000 hours of printing, but I have no benchmark to compare …
Thanks for a *great* filament!!
