Matteforge Advanced Matte PLA has a unique Matte finish resulting in a printed object with nearly invisible layer lines.
From the manufacturer:
MatteForge is a new filament that produces a beautiful matte, low gloss finish right off the print bed.
This innovative filament produces a finish unlike any other filament. MatteForge reduces the visibility of printed layer lines and gives a professional appearance to all prints. This is achieved whilst enhancing the contrast between light and shadow to highlight fine details. This highly desirable effect makes MatteForge perfect for industrial and product design, and technical engineering models.
We decided to launch MatteForge as we were tired of the usual glossy finish associated with almost all PLA based materials.
MatteForge gives an enhanced matte finish that exceeds even the best ABS filaments but has the ease of printability associated with PLA. This is done without the need for additives that might weaken the filament.
Not only does MatteForge have a stunning low gloss finish, it also has very good mechanical properties such as high impact resistance and good flexural strength.
MatteForge is very easy to print so is great for both beginners and printing professionals. As it is PLA based it does not warp and has amazing layer adhesion, but more importantly MatteForge has no odour.
MatteForge is very easy to use and has the same print settings as typical PLA. MatteForge is compatable with even the most basic 3D printers and a heated bed is not required.
Recommended Printing Temperature:
180 - 220C (ideal 195C)
Not Required (but can be used)
Recommended Printing Speed:
40 - 120 mm/s
MatteForge is initially available in black, white, grey, red, blue, green, yellow and orange.
These are available in 1.75mm or 2.85mm diameters.
Each 1KG MatteForge filament is supplied on a transparent spool in a 230 x 210 x 80mm retail box. The filament is vacuum packed inside along with a desiccant bag.

Beautiful matte, low gloss finish...
The beautiful matte, low gloss finish from MatteForge compared to the glossy finish associated with almost all PLA based materials.
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.View full product details

This is an enclosure kit for the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer.
Help regulate the temperature and reduce drafts for improved print quality and keep curious fingers (or paws) off of your print. You also get a slight reduction in the already low noise output of the Ultimaker printer.
The kit includes an instruction sheet, the laser cut panels and fasteners. The Ultimaker S5 3D printer is not included with the enclosure kit. If you are looking to get one, we have them available for purchase here.
Some of the features of the design that we think are really neat:
All of our enclosures have the option to add a BOFA HEPA air filtration system which is considered to be the industry leaders in filtration. The 3D PrintPRO range of extraction systems combine high capture performance with proven filter technology, ensuring the effective removal of hazardous particulate, gases/vapours and odours associated with 3D printing methods.
The BOFA PrintPro2 is lower print option without a return hose ideal for materials that do not need a warm build chamber.
The BOFA PrintPro3 is a higher end solution with a return hose and variable speed, making it ideal for ABS/ASA/Nylon printing.
To mount the hose to the enclosure you will need to print this hose adaptor to easily attach the BOFA to any of our enclosure designs. You can download them here.View full product details
