For today’s print we chose part of the GE “Build Your Own Jet Engine” project which can be found on Thingiverse. For this print we selected our bright red nGen filament and the result is stunning.

Measuring 26cm across, we printed this part on the Leapfrog HS and it performed extremely well with our nGen filament. This part, printed at a 0.1mm layer height, took approximately 12 hours to print.
nGen was released late last year as our second Amphora based co-polyester from Eastman Chemical Company, after succesfully launching colorFabb_XT in 2014. Since then, we have also launched the high temperature resistant colorFabb_HT and recently the semi-flexible nGen_FLEX.
nGen is a perfect all-round material to make prototypes, big and small. nGen comes in 17 great and carefully selected colors . Because of nGen’s good mechanical properties parts will last a long time.
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 about nGen, based on Eastman Amphora AM3300, on our dedicated nGen landing page.
nGen is now available in our webshop and through our worldwide network of distributors and resellers.
