Such a change is not possible as you would have to change the printcore which is not supported during a printing. But you can change from one color to another of the same filament by using the change material function during a pause.

Actually, you don't need to change printcores if you go from PLA to TPU, for example, only PVA requires a specific printcore.

 

But, that would still not work as the settings from printing PLA and TPU, as an example, are different and you cannot change the settings mid-print.
