I was looking to get a dual extruder for multi - color prints when i started to wonder if it is possible to get good multi - color prints by simply changing the filament mid print with some sort of software pause feature. With this pause method i’d imagine you’d be limited to color changes along the Z - axis only but it would be a good segway into a dual extruder if it became needed.
Is anybody currently doing this? and if so what is your method? Do you simply pause the machine and manually move things around?
