Discussion How to do flat multicolour 3D prints with a normal printer
#1
Video 
Hey guys,

Came across this today, this guy is really thinking outside of the box and I can think of many things this could be used to print, coasters being one off the top of my head...



Obviously nothing beats the ease of a multi extruder machine or a multi filament nozzle, but this is definitely practical for the average user with a printer!

What would you use this to print?

I really like that and it's quite an ingenious way of doing it which I would never have though of. If I get some time I might give it a try.

Thanks for sharing [Image: thumbs-up.png]

This is creative but it seems like it'd take a lot of effort to perfect, especially if you don't have a standardized nozzle.
You'd need both a perfectly leveled bed and a perfectly configured nozzle layout in order for this to work properly.
It's a creative idea for those who want flat multicolored prints, but I think changing filament at a specified layer is far easier.

Though I've already seen this method used on Reddit, so it might be easier than I expect, than again I only saw the finished result and not the potential headache of setting up.

Yeah, it is a good reminder to think outside of the box though. There are a lot of things that we can do with 3d printing that are outside of the normal print and people forget to be innovative with something as awesome as printing.
