How do I merge two .stl files in Cura 2.7 (for 3 Extended) to do two-color print?

Posted · How do I merge two .stl files in Cura 2.7 (for 3 Extended) to do two-color print?

Each of these disks are 50mm in diameter. The blue one is 8mm tall and the yellow is 1mm tall. I want to merge the two files so that the blue is sitting directly on top of the yellow and each is printed a different color using a different extruder. I've selected all models and merged them but every time something different goes wrong. The first time the merge appeared to be successful but then the two models didn't adhere to each other after printing as if there was space in between the two. The second time I tried merging them the yellow one kept being placed on top of the blue one with space in between the two. The third time the yellow one was merged inside of the blue one. Thank you for your help.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
