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

    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.
