How to print a same model in different materials in different parts?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to print a same model in different materials in different parts?

Hello everyone,

my machine is Ultimaker 3. Now i use cura to slicer the model.

Now i have a model with two different parts, A and B.

The relationship between A and B is that, B is inside A, it's a part of A but not support.

A and B are both important parts of this model, but they should be printed with different material.

Ultimaker 3 has 2 Extrusions, but i don't know how to set the parameter to change the material, because these two parts are both not "Support".

Is there someone who can help me?I can try another slicer software.

An important precondition is that you save both parts in different files.

Load both files in Cura and select the extruder for each part.

Once you have done that, you can merge both parts together again in Cura

(i guess it will work quite similar with other slicers).

 

Have a look at the manual for "Select extruder" and "Merging models" (scroll a bit down on these pages)

 

Hope that helps!
