It works suprisingly well! but I'm not sure of the cost effectivness... Here Sharpies are $3 each, and I doubt they would last more than a single print?

You could make a custom hotend with a dosing system off the side with powdered color being added in through there, but I feel like that would be more complex than just a filament changer lol.
