### Marble distribution

In a class, the teacher gives each student $n$ marbles, and each marble was either red, blue, or green. Each student gets a different combination of marbles (i.e. no two students get the same number of red, blue, and green marbles altogether). Also, no two students have a total of exactly $n$ marbles of any color between them. What is the maximum number of students in the class?
