i'm getting gaps between my colors. i notice that your colors are nicely integrated.

i am using 123D and Cura.

my model is a key fob consisting of a single letter within a square base. in 123D my two objects are completely touching since i used the letter to carve out a space in the base. however, there are gaps between the letter and the base. so i tweaked all the letter-facing base surfaces 0.05mm in toward the letter, essentially making the base overlap with the outer edges of the letter. i also set Cura to overlap colors by 0.15.

i still get gaps in the same places. it's almost like my adjustments were ignored. i want 0 gap between the 2 colors.

suggestions anyone?

note: i have an image showing the problem, but i don't see any way to upload an image here.

    What printer do you have? An Ultimaker Original with dual extrusion upgrade?

    In legacy Cura, go to the machine settings and adjust the second extruder by the x and y offset you'll find there. There are a few designs on Youmagine and Thingiverse which allow for proper dual alignment.
