Tagged: ColorFabb NGEN
I want to create a topic for the general exchange of printing experience using the ColorFabb NGEN line of filaments amongst Sigma users. If a thread like this already exists please let me know, I couldn’t find any.
Currently I am trying to find the optimum printing parameters for NGEN especially towards a high strength, as I want to print some mechanical parts.
I ran a couple of iterations printing this small calibration object
I have little to no problems with adhesion, warping, overhangs, bridges or stringyness, the material performs great in that regard. I do have the issue though, that the outlines and the infill do not bond well together. There are a lot of small gaps and you can acutally peel of the outline from the infill, even though I am already running on 40% overlapp.
If anyone experiences similar problems or the BCN3D guys would like to share their printing settings, I would greatly appreciate it. You will find my current settings below.
Current Sigma NGEN settings: (Using Simplify 3D)
Extrusion Multiplier 1,00
Extruder Temp 230°C
Bed Temperature 80°C
Layer height 0.1mm
top/bottom layers 5
Infill Extr. Width 100%
Fan Speed 100%
Print Speed 40 mm/s
Solid layer Speed 16 mm/s
