I don't use PLA or ABS anymore...Review by Charles
nGen is very predictable and strong. Great quality. I'll just pile on to the other 5 star reviews. This is my go to filament. Heated bed 85C, nozzles 230C, I use Gizmo Dorks 6" bed tape for an easy quick release. (Posted on 8/4/2016)
My go to Filament!Review by Rich
nGen is always my "go to" filament. It just prints beautifully. It's strong, handles heat well, reliable, and just looks great. I never worry about how it's going to turn out. I print with black, dark gray, dark green, dark blue, and red and never have to change the settings. I use a lot of different types of filament, but for critical prototyping nGen can't be beat!

Really easy to printReview by Thomas
this stuff printed perfectly with the recomended settings. Glossy black prints and at 0.2 layer height the prints are really sturdy and durable. Don't let the price fool you, you might pay more per gram but you need way less grams per print ( I used to print 3 perimeters printing pla, with ngen only 2 and I think 5% less infill). Will definitlty order again ! (Posted on 1/28/2016)
The best black there is for a UM2Review by Nigel
I have always struggled printing with black PLA, the balance between temperature and speed is so tight and you have to constantly monitor the print, but, not any more. I initially had a little lifting of a 0.4mm bottom layer wall, but knocking the bed temperature up to 85C fixed that. No lifting of larger surfaces either - mirror surface edge to edge.

I also started printing NGEN at 240C based on what I had learned with XT but dialed that back to 230 because of the stringing and spider web that appeared at the end of the print. I was also very happily surprised that the same settings seem to work well for Black, Clear, Purple and gold.

I think I'm an NGEN convert and I'm not phased by printing in black any more. (Posted on 12/21/2015)

nGen gives best results on a heated build platform, 75C to about 85C is usually needed for proper adhesion to a glass plate.
Printing on a cold bed is possible but you’ll need some adhesion tools to minimize warping. 3DLac, buildTak or 3DEeze can do the trick.
