ColorFabb XT 2.2kg 2.85mm RED
ColorFabb XT is a co-polyester material manufactured primarily from PETG. It leans to the stringier side compared to other 3D materials. Using it requires careful tweaking. But artists are so pleased with the results they find it worth the time.

The Origins of XT
Collaborating with Eastman Chemical, ColorFabb created a series of materials for 3D printing. colorFabb XT Red stands out, sitting alongside popular 3D materials like ColorFabb’s core filament PLA / PHA.
Exactly What is XT?
The Eastman/ColorFabb partnership used Eastman AmphoraTM AM1800 3D polymer to develop XT. XT is low-odor and styrene- and BPA-free. The material is robust and exceptionally strong. XT has a resistance to high temps and a solid TG compared to PLA. It’s also FDA approved for food contact.
The filament has a reliable roundness to it. It loads into the extruder with no trouble. colorFabb _XT also comes through the nozzle with ease at 464 degrees Fahrenheit (240 degrees Celsius).
XT Stands Out in Testing
Comprehensive testing proves time and again ColorFabb’s outstanding performance. Thin walls and circles print with impressive overhangs and dimensionality. The material is a solid copolyester filament when combined with a well-calibrated 3D printer and a defined slicing profile.
One thing artists appreciate about XT is its transparency. With the right calculations, you can develop amazing effects. The process requires a model with walls multiple the size of your nozzle. You’ll have to adjust the slicer and play with infill rates. Another thing to keep in mind is XT transparency requires straight, long lines. Corners and curves lessen any transparency effects.
ColorFabb XT is a promising filament for the artist willing to put a little work to get the best prints. Its capacity for opaqueness gives off a strong professional vibe. You’ll appreciate its good layer adhesion and cool bridging.
ColorFabb XT makes for a great 3D tool!
