- Brittle and poor layer adhesion
I am not sure if it is only this colour or this batch, but I am having a lot of problems printing with silver and getting it strong enough. I have used other colours, and especially the paler ones have performed marvellously.
Is some other kind of settings needed for the metallic ones?
Right now, as someone mentioned above, the PLA silver is much stronger and easier to work with. (Posted on 1/23/2019)
- Still not convinced
Although I had high hopes for this I am still not convinced that it will replace their PLA. I have a lot of experience with their PLA shining silver that is still way easier to print, has a better, nicer looking finish and as of yet is stronger than my first couple of prints with NGEN. I do believe NGEN has a better temperature tolerance than PLA but I do not believe it is stronger. It is very brittle and even cracked a couple of times getting it off the heatbed. That never happend to me with PLA. Maybe it is this specific colour, who knows.... (Posted on 12/2/2018)
- NGEN silver metallic robot
Excellent material, easy to print, nice hightech look.
I printed several robots with this material.
See http://atomclip.com/sg90-robot-arm.html for an example. (Posted on 2/11/2018)
- Perfect colour and very easy to print
Perfect colour and very easy to print. Done with the first roll and ordered a new one. THE filament for daily usage, no warping, strong, thermal resistance and with a fine touch. (Posted on 8/29/2017)
At colorFabb we have a well equipped 3d printing studio with a lot of popular 3d printers. We know our materials will give you excellent results and to help you get these results here are tips and trick for using colorFabb 3d printing filament.
Adviced 3d printing temperature:
Adviced 3d print speed:
40 - 70 mm/s
Advised Heated bed
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.
For some materials we have a made learn.colorfabb.com article.
Since colorFabb develops and produces their own filaments we have a lot of knowhow about our materials. Here you’ll find all kinds of interesting material specifications that will help you decide which material is best for your project.
