    This had to be an obvious place to use multiple tools. Even so, I'm glad it came out so well as getting everything rolling and getting consistent tool changes that will start almost immediately after priming has taken some time to figure out....

    STLs also in case you want to print something similar in this or your own color scheme.

    Nice ! I did the same experiment for my first multi-colored print, with e3D's files from GitHub. Took me 4 tries before managing to get the PLA to mostly stick and the extrusion multiplier mostly right :-D :

    There's room for improvement, but I'm working on it :)

    Nice. I took a different approach. I went back and found some XT (a PET formulation) and printed it as translucent as I could. Put some tape on the gear inside and drew a red line on the tape. This way I can see the position of the tool lock.

    @Spoon Unit great design, i already made one.
    And once the printer and the settings are completely set up, i am going to make another one which pretty enough to show it :D
