How to print in two colours on Ultimaker 2

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I recently tried pausing and changing the filament for the last few layers for a two colour effect.

I looked at the Cura website which told me to use Extensions ->Post processing -> Modify G code, then add a pause and filament change.

But despite doing that, it just carries on and finished the job and doesn't stop at all.

 

Am I doing something wrong, or do I just need to wait and pause the print manually then change the material?  It's a bit of a pain for very long jobs when I want to change near the end!

I was printing from Thingiverse a Cat earphones holder if you want to see what I needed to do the dual print:

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
