How to print a piece in two colors (PLA Black + PLA orange)

[translated to english by gr5 - this part of the forum is for english only]



I allow myself to ask a question on the forum because I have been stuck for a while for the realization of a part in 2 different colors.

Let me explain :

I want to print in one piece the attached plate "Bi-material 3 SolidWorks" which is an assembly of two black + orange parts (parts file)

Both plates have the same origin.

But when I merge in Cura, the plates overlap.... see attachment "Cura reality merging"

While I would like this result, see attachment "Cura expected result merging"

Could you help me ?

If what I want to achieve is doable, that will greatly help me!

Thanks in advance
