    the short answer is yes. The modifier would be that anything above 2 colors requires planning and assembly.

    But, I have engineered a lot of things that are done in parts and then assembled for the result you have shown.

    And, yeah, not easy to read your post. Grammar is your friend.

    you can make these prints with a single printhead as well. All the different colours have a separate layer, just make pauses to change the filament.

    An Ultimaker 3 can do 2 colours without the need to pause and change the filament.
