nGen_LUX is a unique development based on colorFabb's 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.
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.

Advised 3D printing temperature:
220-240C - Varies by hot end type. If infill is breaking apart, you will need to decrease speed or increase temperature.
Advised 3D print speed:
40 - 70 mm/s - Varies by hot end type. If infill is breaking apart, you will need to decrease speed or increase temperature.
Advised Heated bed:
For colorFabb_XT we advice to print on a heated bed. After printing, the build plate needs to cool down to about 20-30 C at which point you can remove the printed part.
Some users with Borosilicate Glass beds have reported taking chips out of the bed with copolyesters. Here is a solution to consider if that happens to you.
Each spool contains a minimum of 750g filament neatly wound onto a large diameter spool. The spools are shrinkwrapped, boxed, and then shrinkwrapped again.
