Recommended method for changing filament mid print?

I've read a few posts but they were all a bit old.

Can I change filament mid print using Cura or do I need to use a different software? What's the best way to do it right now?

Re: Think the dual material extruder from the enterprise models will be available for TAZ 6?

Is the Dual Extruder v3 really okay for doing multi color? I was told that it's really only meant for mixing a soluble support material with another.

Think the dual material extruder from the enterprise models will be available for TAZ 6?

Would really like to start printing with multiple colors, just wondering if this is one of those things that will work with my existing printer or if I'll have to buy a whole new printer.

Any recommendations for a tried and tested caliper for doing the measuring?

Re: Cura 2.6.52 Can't split objects into parts?

Cura2 was a complete re-engineering of Cura... And the "Split objects into parts" feature hasn't been implemented yet. It is listed as a "future enhancement" on the primary GitHub repository. No timeline on it -- but I am guessing it will be quite a while. I've heard MeshMixer mentioned as a way to...

It was possible in the previous version of CURA. Why did that feature get removed? I really depended on that for being able to separate objects out and fit them on the build plate. I'm really very confused.. surely I'm not the only one that utilized this?

Cura 2.6.52 Can't split objects into parts?

Have some models I'd like to split up and the option is grayed out for me.

Is this the place to report bugs?

Can the stock TAZ 6 print this?

A student got these pieces off of TinkerCAD's website and asked me to try printing them, but I'm not sure I can pull it off.

I don't see how I could print one piece inside another without any kind of dissolving material.

The "Spin Hub Socket" off tinkercad.

Thanks
