nGen_LUX from Colorfabb is a unique FDM 3D printing filament.
This filament is based on the nGen co-polyester, made from Eastman Amphora AM3300 polymer. The excellent clarity of the AM3300 base makes this material particularly suitable for use with the particular pigment used in nGen_LUX.
The material uses diffuse reflection to scatter light in all directions. It is almost impossible for the eye to detect the difference between the layers, even with a layer height of 0.2 mm. nGen_LUX from Colorfabb allows you to print visually appealing patterns without the need for post-processing. nGen_LUX offers all the characteristic features of nGen: good chemical stability and high temperature resistance (85°C). Therefore it allows to print functional, durable, efficient and aesthetically appealing objects.

Tips & Tricks
- Suggested printing temperature: 220-240°C
- Suggested printing speed: 40-70 mm/s
- Suggested print bed temperature: 75-85°C
nGen_LUX from Colorfabb offers the best results on a heated printing bed, usually set in the range of 75°C to 85°C for proper adhesion to the glass. Fixatives can also be used to improve the adhesion of the first layer.
Printing on an unheated print bed is possible for small to medium sized parts but is not recommended for large parts that are prone to warping.
Excessive cooling will lead to fragile parts with poor adhesion between layers. Therefore we recommend starting with 50% cooling. It is always best to print nGen_LUX with minimal cooling to get the best adhesion between layers.
