Print with three materials


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print with three materials

Hi all,


I have to print a part with TPU in two colours, white and blue, and I would like to use PVA for support estructures; is it possible to set up a stop then change the material (insert TPU blue instead of PVA) and the hot end (AA for BB, I need the two colors in the same layer), and continue printing the rest of the part? soluble support only share layers with white TPU.


I think this is not possible directly in cura but I suppose I can add some code lines in order to do so?


Thank you guys!

    If you go into Cura -> Extensions -> Post Processing then you can put filament changes in at specific layer heights.


    I use this method on an Ender 3 and it works perfectly. Not sure how it would work with the AA/BB core change though, sorry.
