Latest Eastman, colorFabb Collaboration Expands 3D Printing Filament Range

Newest material expands processing capabilities for Amphora line

Kingsport, Tenn., USA — Dec. 17, 2015 — To further expand its filament offerings for 3D printing, Eastman Chemical Company and colorFabb BV are adding to their collaborative range of materials for the industry. The companies will launch nGen made with Eastman Amphora™ AM3300 3D polymer at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Jan. 6-9, 2016, with Aleph Objects, Inc., makers of the award-winning LulzBot desktop 3D printers.

The newest filament offers a wide processing temperature range allowing for quicker printing, while maintaining many of the advantages that Eastman Amphora™ 3D polymer brought to the colorFabb_XT product. nGen remains a tough, low-odor, styrene-free solution suited for a variety of 3D printing needs.

“The use of this material runs the gamut of 3D-printed applications, ranging from prototyping to experimenting, and from designing to making serious money,” said Ruud Rouleaux, managing director, colorFabb.

“In addition, nGen made with Eastman Amphora™ AM3300 3D polymer will allow for casual users and those who enjoy do-it-yourself projects to use a high-quality filament,” said Alex Dudal, market development representative, Eastman.

At CES, Eastman and colorFabb will collaborate with Aleph Objects, Inc. to showcase nGen as the new filament officially supported for their LulzBot line of 3D printers. Learn more by visiting Booth 72117 in Halls A-C in the 3D printing marketplace at the show.
