Last week we were at the CES in Las Vegas as Lulzbot’s material partner. It was a fantastic show where we met a lot of our users. It was great meeting all of you! And once again we saw several Lulzbot Mini’s and TAZ 6 printers flawlessly printing with nGen during the entire run of the show. Aside from printing during the show, the giant (21kg) Rocktopus was printed with nGen as well and quite a showstopper!
For today’s print of the day we go for small instead of huge on the Lulzbot Mini. For this model we chose the Wireframe Skull Pencil Holder, designed by Phil Nelson.
We printed these parts on the Lulzbot Mini in our printlab with nGen Purple and nGen Transparent. The height of these prints is only 4cm!! The layer height for these detailed prints was 0.08mm. The combination of the Lulzbot printers and our nGen filaments allow for extreme details.
nGen was launched with Lulzbot a year ago during the CES show. It has been a proven hit ever since and one of our best selling filaments.
nGen is an all-round filament which has many advantages over PLA. The temperature resistance is over 80 degrees C and it works on most printers with a heated build plate. 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 on our dedicated landing page.
nGen is made with Eastman Amphora™ 3D polymer AM3300. With Amphora, items can be created that are more functional, more durable, more efficient, and attractive.
nGen is available through our webshop, Lulzbot’s webshop and our distributor network worldwide.
