Chris - Gcode Pauses for color changes or hardware insertion is easy! If you want to print multiple colors just find the layer you want to change colors in the Gcode. Type M0 before the color change. When the machine pauses change material. The machine will then prompt to resume. Voila! Easy 2 color (or more) prints.

If like what you hear and would like to donate. Click here to purchase your very own set of chic black drink coasters with the white ‘All Things 3D’ logo from $5 - $30 depending how many you need or want to contribute.  This will keep us up and running and keep my spouse from throwing me and all my 3D stuff out on the street.  Just kidding, just me.  But don't worry, I can still do this in my PT Crusier outside of McDonalds.
