ColorFabb to Release nGen_LUX 3D Printing Filament

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

ColorFabb is introducing it’s latest 3D printing filament.  nGen_LUX. nGen_LUX is a unique development based on the 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.
It is a new standard in how a 3D printed object can look. It is the filament for the users who wants to bring something extraordinary to their work. It is the filament that needs to give that added value. The aesthetics of nGen_LUX allow for a new step in production and prototyping, especially for cosmetics, packaging, interior parts, electronics housings and many more applications.

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. 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.ColorFabb ngen_LUX_prints_web-0022
nGen_LUX is the first special filament based on nGen and the second one in the range of co-polyesters after XT-CF20, our carbon fibre enforced filament based on colorFabb_XT.

Initially, five colors will be offered, with more being scheduled for release in the months to come. The available colors are:

  • Champagne Gold
  • Diamond Black
  • Regal Violet
  • Star Yellow
  • Nature Green
nGen_LUX is available for ordering now. Shipping starts on Monday February 26th. RRP is € 66.07 / € 79.95 (excl / incl VAT) for 750 grams of filament.
The brand new nGen_LUX fits perfectly in colorFabb’s portfolio that consists of both functional and aesthetical filaments.  Pictures can say more than a thousand words, but prints made with nGen_LUX have to be seen!

nGen_LUX was announced during the TCT in Birmingham last year. The audience at the show was unanimous with praise when they saw the printed parts we had there. Best reaction of them all: “This just looks too good!”nGen_LUX is based on the very popular nGen, the allround 3D printing filament launched two years ago. nGen_LUX works with the same settings as nGen and has been tested in colorFabb’s print lab on the most popular printers currently in the market : the Prusa i3, both the Stacker S2 and S4, the Lulzbot TAZ 6 and Mini, the Robo R2 and C2, the Ultimaker range of printers and the Mass Portal Pharaoh. Rest assured that if your printer works with nGen (and most of them with a heated bed do) you the user can achieve the stellar results.
