Ok so I have an idea, hardware upgrade! - What if a specialized extruder head could be made to allow 3 filaments into the head, saaaay Red Green and Blue, then by having the 3 feeders control the ammount, you could effectivly 'mix' any color! - you'd have to get creative with how it works, but these are the things that quite allot of people are asking, the 'but can it do that' advancements that really turn heads - atleast it's on the list for the girls I've talked to .. lol :)

Or, How about this, even better!

what if someone developed color filament based on the specific temperature it was extruded, like the 'Mood plastic' they have on those cards or in those rings,

I found this on amazon:

Stress Card, Mood Card, Plastic cards

BLACK = Tense

RED = Nervous

GREEN = Calm

BLUE = Relaxed

Warm Hands are Relaxed, Cold Hands are Tense.

The stress chip shows ... bla bla bla

I know that would be quite a chemistry exploration, but imagin if you could offer a single filament, that could be ANY colour, or atleast within a range - based on temp

..

ohh and while your at it, a sparkly line of filaments, especially clear.

    Well both links are the same guy RichRap, he is doing wonders with the multiple colour technique. I also remember hyrel doing a kickstarter for a similar concept. Not too sure it saw the light of day. I guess plastic is not the same as light.

    OMG wow! .. I really need to look around more, thats prettymuch exactly what I was thinking! .. I'm amazed . thanks for the links guys! ...humm .. I'm wondering how far people could go with it in terms of vibrancy and selectability of the colors ... like in the code could be the 'mix' ..and you could control an entire palette of colors .. like a reasonable ammount of gamut ... then eventually be able to print the full gamut with specialized filament err whatever.. now thAT would be cool.
