printing with 2 colors

Posted · printing with 2 colors

Hi, Im trying to print with to colors. It is a single object and I cant split it in multiple objects. Is there an option in Cura to change the selected Printcore at layer x? Like the script "Filament Change", but for Printcore/material.

 

Thanks for your time, Fritzi16_2

Yeah, that works. But my intension is to switch from extruder 1 to extruder 2 at layer x. Changing the Filament manually takes time and the worst, it takes a human.

You can only do that when your model is split in two parts. In Cura you can say, print part 1 with Extruder 1 and part 2 with the other extruder. It is not possible to change the extruder at a specific layer number.

If you don't have any CAD software or experience with it, search for some online tools. I am sure there are some tools where you can upload an STL and split it into 2 parts. 

 

Some time ago there was such an online service of Prusa, but I am not sure if it is still online, because they built in the functionality into the PrusaSlicer.

      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.
