Thank you so much.

    Yes, this is possible just make sure you split (have TWO different) .stl files.

     

    stl file 1 = Colour 1

    stl file 2 = Colour 2

    Hi AnaLara,

     

    I have used this to print architectural facade models

    • separate your digital file so that each material you want your print to be is a different group of objects but the item looks like you want it to be
    • make sure these two groups have the same origin and rotation 
    • export two different stl files from your design software for each of the groups
    • open the two stl files in CURA. The files will be separate
    • select each of the objects and change their material by clicking the roll button on the left of the screen.
    • select both objects and right click
    • select merge models
    • print
