Dual colour from textured models


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Dual colour from textured models

I have a model that I have designed in blender and I've textured the faces. I have printed it successfully at shapeways and I was wondering how I can print it on my Ultimaker as it is only 2 colours. The instructions seem to suggest that I can only print 2 separate models. Is there a way to get my model into 2 separate models? Or, some way to tell Cura about colours since it supports texture supporting file formats.

 

Oh, my model is very low poly, so complexes in mesh mixer isn't going to help unless I can increase the poly count without changing the shape... which I'm not sure how to do.

 

It'd be really good if could somehow process the model, choose a base colour then for accents, choose a depth to print with the second head.

 

Thanks

Nigel

    There are a lot of tutorials for Mesmixer, also on increasing poly count and so, it is a very useful program..

     

    I think this is the way to go:
