Color is important for most 3d printing projects, which is why we’ve decided to bring color to our colorFabb_XT line of filament! The colorFabb_XT co-polyester range, made with Eastman Amphora™ 3D polymer, is now available in many vibrant colors. We’ve selected these colors carefully and are sure these will help create better looking colorFabb_XT co-polyester prints. Not sure which color to pick? Check out our colorFabb_XT samples

- Really strong stuff, great for functional parts.
Printing this was a breeze at 255 on my craftbot 2, remember people this is a PETG so you'll most likely need top lower your extrusion multiplier by about 5% also PETG likes to be laid down instead of being squished flat like PLA, so you'll also need to apply a offset to your Z of about 0,05-0,07 mm.
After that it prints like a dream (Posted on 5/13/2017)
- Mostly not worth it
This is one of the most difficult materials I have ever worked with. Requires fine tuning of retraction and coasting to get acceptable quality. If blobs start to build up on perimeters, they will propagate through the entire print and ruin everything. I never use it above 40 mm/sec or with layers thicker than 0.15 mm. Even then, the prints simply never look as good as with other materials. However, the sturdiness, excellent layer adhesion and low warp of this material makes it worth the trouble for larger prints and parts that really need toughness. For all other uses, I'd suggest something else. (Posted on 11/26/2016)
- nice to print and shiny
have used a whole spool of this now and just have to say its stronger and prints a bit nicer and the layers a nicer than the pla/pha but its more brittle and needed a couple of tries to get the printer dialed inn and retraction as this gets a lot of string and hair if printer not adjusted good enough (Posted on 3/11/2016)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 printing temperature:
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.
