ColorFabb Releases A Line Of Copolyester-Based 3D Printing Filament Called nGen

Written By Scott J Grunewald Via 3DPrint.com

Long gone are the days when all anyone needed was a few spools of various colored PLA filaments to get everything that they could out of their 3D printers. Technology has been advancing at an astounding rate, and most desktop 3D printers are capable of using materials that were previously only available for consumer or industrial machines. This has caused an explosion of new, advanced desktop 3D printing filaments to be developed by a rapidly growing list of materials and filament manufacturers. But while 3D printing may no longer be a one- or two-material industry, many users are still looking for a single, all-purpose filament that will be usable for a wide range of applications on desktop printers of all makes.

In response to this demand, Dutch materials manufacturer colorFabb is releasing their newest line of 3D printing filaments called nGen. The advanced copolyester material was co-developed with global chemicals developer Eastman Chemical Company as part of their Amphora range of 3D printing copolyesters. ColorFabb says that nGen not only has a smooth surface with reduced striation when printed, but was formulated to tolerate a large range of printing temperatures, making it easier to use than most advanced materials. nGen also has a glass temperature that can exceed 85ºC (185ºF), giving it over double the heat resistance of standard PLA.
