Bi-color printing

Had an idea this morning. 3 people in the office have birthdays today. How to celebrate? Print something for their nameplate.

A colleague asked about printing in multiple colors. Well this machine has a single extruder so automatic color change is not possible.

However, there is a function to ‘change filament’ during the build process. Well, here’s the result.

Cool but tricky as you have to know exactly when to swap. This one was pretty easy since I just had to watch it switch fron the rectangle to the graphic.

I’ve handed them out. If you are in the Manchester Autodesk office, one of these might make it to you on you special day.

Happy Making!
