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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
