Change extruders at layer/z height?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Change extruders at layer/z height?

Hi, I'm trying to get into some dual-color printing with my ultimaker 3.

 

The stls I have are relatively hard to split into different parts as one would normally do when dual color printing.

 

Is it possible to simply tell cura to swap extruders at specific layer heights? I know that when one has a signle extruder, you simply pause the print and change filaments, so I'm looking for similar, but I want to swap extruders instead at certain layers.

I think a plugin like the following is what I'm looking for, but I can't seem to get it to work:

Thanks!
