External device_multicolor printing_Ultimaker 2

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am currently wondering how I can print multicolor 3D objects with my “Ultimaker 2”. So far, I just found a product called “Spectrom”.It would be great to get some suggestions for an easy installation with at least 6 different colors. It is not an alternative to buy a color printer. Therefore, it has to be a solution addon. Thank you:)

Look into a product called "mosaic". They are out of canada. It only works on 1.75mm filament but you can get a 1.75mm conversion kit from 3dsolex as well. They do I think only up to 4 colors. If 2 colors are enough look into the "mark 2 upgrade".]

Usually multicolor printing is done by printing separate parts and connecting them together later. This is true of most things I find in Walmart as well.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
