650g spool of Black ColorFabb nGen Flex 3D printer filament, sold in both 1.75mm and 3.00mm (2.85mm) diameters. The 2.85mm diameter filament is ideal for your Ultimaker 3D printers.

nGen_FLEX is made for those who are seriously looking for a engineering grade semi-flex material. We have used this on a Prusa i3 with a 0.98mm layer height and a 2.5mm nozzle with a Wade’s Extruder and it worked very well, so like all Colorfabb filaments it is very printable. It is Semi-flexible, meaning it is stiffer than classic NinjaFlex which in a lot of ways means that you can print very functional items, it’s not just for rapid prototyping.

Why not take a look at this molex connector seal that we printed with nGen Flex Black.

Why ColorFabb nGen Flex?

nGen-FLEX is a new elastomer material that is a semi-flexible material with good printability on most 3D printers so that specialized flex extruders should not be necessary. It has a Shore A hardness level of 95. You can change how flexible your part is by adjusting infill and perimeter settings.

The other great characteristic of nGen Flex 3D printer filament is it’s high temperature resistance and good chemical stability so that you can 3D print functional parts for real world applications. It can withstand temperatures up to 125C and can be steam sterilised to 121C.

Returns & Refunds

Firstly, if you want to return a product or you have a faulty product please get in touch as soon as possible!

To prevent ordering incorrect items, if you are unsure just ask and we can offer some guidance. However, bear in mind that we cannot say whether a particular product will be right for the purpose that you intend to use it for.

You can return your goods to iDig3Dprinting for any reason within 14 business days following receipt at your delivery address as long as they are in a re-saleable condition.

Filaments & resins cannot be returned once opened as once exposed to air these items perish.

Downloadable goods and 3D print samples cannot be returned and no refund will be issued.

Shipping costs of returned items are paid by the customer

A full refund will be issued for unopened items that are returned in their original packaging that are in a “as new” re-saleable condition minus additional costs that are incurred by iDig3Dprinting like payment processing fees, custom duties or charges.

We are afraid we cannot issue refunds for products that have been defaced, altered, used, or damaged in any way. All requests for refunds are subject to inspection by iDig3DPrinting of the returned item. We are not a charity or a lending library.

Refunds and returns for faulty items works a bit differently. Faulty goods can be accepted for return upto 60 days from receipt of the goods (However we prefer to offer diagnostics and repair solutions prior to an actual return, its better for the environment). After this time you will need to contact the Manufacturer. A repair or replacement will be issued for faulty goods once they have passed inspection and been found by iDig3Dprinting to be faulty.

This is a brief account of our returns policy. For the full terms please see our Terms and conditions page. Content on the Terms and Conditions page supersedes this content.

How to raise a return request

  • email idig3dprinting at support@idig3dprinting.co.uk and we will issue a Return Authorization Number (RAN).
  • send the goods back in their original packaging.
  • Once we receive the goods back we will then check them and if everything is as it should be be will issue a refund.
  • If appropriate Refunded payments will then be issued using the original payment option. The time it takes to land in your bank account is determined by the payment gateway used not us.

The main thing is please communicate with us. We are not omnipotent!

We can be quite flexible but this is built upon a foundation of mutual respect between our customers and iDig3Dprinting.
