COLORFABB_XT is unlike PLA absolutely neutral from color and completely transparent. So if your 3d print project requires some transparency then should give COLORFABB_XT a try, it is as transparent as any filament can get.

- Super tough, low warp
A really nice material to work with. Very different from the colored XT. Quite viscous when molten, which will cause problems with fine details if the print speed is to high. Stay below 40-50 mm/sec to avoid that. Not very useful for see-through prints, but this is an awesome technical material that combines exceptional strength with super low warp and great layer adhesion. (Posted on 11/26/2016)
- An absolute favorite
XT Clear is by far the most versatile material I use. Being XT, its strength, overhang capabilities, layer bonding and low friction makes it one of the most versatile and reliable materials out there for functional as well as visually stunning prints. The "clear" advantage of this Clear hue is the fact that it prints flawlessly at a slightly lower temperature than its colored counterparts. I normally run my prints on my UM2 between 225 and 235° when using this material and could probably even print slightly faster than colored XTs on higher temperatures thanks to this advantage. An absolute must in your collection. I never run out of it. (Posted on 11/2/2016)
- A ghostly translucent when printed.
I love the milky sheen this material has when printed. Walls are rarely transparent by themselves, but straight off the bed it will produce beautiful prints. It is also a little more brittle with the scalpel than the PLA/PHA. (Posted on 12/8/2015)
Did a temperature test print on UM2, print temperature between 220-250C can work, above 250C the material doesn t come out transparent.
Overhang is good.
Transparency is good but the more layers and thicker you make walls reduce transparency.
Overall a very good material to work with. (Posted on 12/2/2015)
- Tips for transparent objects
Single-layered prints become almost totally transparent after applying XTC-3D resin on both sides !
Really impressive, T-glase is no longer the must for transparency ;) (Posted on 9/3/2015)
All colorFabb 3d printing filaments are produced in our own production facility, situated in the Netherlands. Since no external parties are involved in the making of colorFabb filament we can ensure consistent quality on every order.
Excellent diameter tolerance
An important machine in our production are the laser measurement systems used to check the diameter of our filament real time during production. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and helps us guarantee that each spool of colorFabb 3d printing filament produced within tolerance. We can guarantee 0,05mm +/- on both 2,85mm and 1,75mm colorFabb 3d printing filament, which means you can rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material.
Within minutes of production a spool of colorFabb 3d printing filament is sealed airtight with a double barrier foil. To go the extra mile, we’ll also seal the fancy cardboard box that we use to ship our product. You can make sure colorFabb 3d printing filament is fresh and ready for 3d printing when you’re done unboxing.
The colorFabb testlab features a wide range of popular 3d printers. We’re continuously testing on our 3d printers to keep checking the quality of the materials we produce and to develop exciting new materials for the maker community. If your not sure how to print with our materials on your 3d printer, please contact us at email@example.com
The following printers are used in our lab:
- Ultimaker Original
- Ultimaker Original Dual Extrusion
- Ultimaker 2
- Makerbot Replicator 2s
- Delta Tower (E3D hot-end)
- Felix 20
- Leapfrog Creator
- Mass Portal Pharaoh ED
- Prusa i3 HEPHESTOS

ColorFabb was founded as a brand of Helian Polymers, a sister company of Peter Holland which have been active in the master batch and additives for the plastics processing industry. Our knowhow, network and partnerships is driving material innovations and quality. You can expect colorFabb to keep on developing interesting new materials, which will be tested on a variety of printers to make sure it’ll get the job done.
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 print speed:
40 - 70 mm/s
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.
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.
