Print on top of existing object with different material


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print on top of existing object with different material

I would like to print an easter egg with a logo on one side. I created a model for the egg and one for the logo. How can I tell Cura to print the egg first, change the material and print the logo on top of the existing object? I can't use change material as height because the logo is curved.

    Hi Multiholle,

     

    I fear your project is only possible with a dual (or multi) extrusion printer, because fdm printing works building layer-by-layer. Printing on top of curved surfaces is (actually yet) impossible.

    But: your design is exactly what you need to make a dual material print (in Cura: load both files, merge files and connect each file with another extruder).Cura print guide - Printing with two colors.pdf
