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

Recommended Posts

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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
