How to print using nGen:

In order to achieve the best results, it is important to adjust the Slicer settings according to the material being used. The most important settings are explained below:

  • Heated platform: nGen is best printed using heated platforms. Ideally it is best to approach the glass transition temperature. The printing bed should be heated to 70-85 °C.
  • Printing temperature: At normal setting such as 0.2 mm layer height and 50mm / s printing speed, we recommend a compression temperature of between 220 ​​- 240 ° C.
  • Cooling: If you printing continuously using the 100% cooling setting, it is possible that the individual layers may separate. If this is the case, the cooling setting must be reduced in order to resolve the problem. 
  • Bridging: We recommend the speed of bridging be reduced somewhat. Cooling can be set at 100%.
  • Retraction: The PLA retraction settings should correspond to that of nGen. However, it these setting may require some adjustments.
