Print Layered Parts

Fri Apr 24, 2020 8:44 am

Hi all,

I am working on a 2 color part. I have done this in the past and it worked. In the past parts, the first part and second part never co-existed on any on layer. For example, the base part came to layer 20 and the second part started at layer 21.

In this job it is more like the base part goes to layer 30 and the second part is at layers 20 to 23.

So in this picture, I want to print the big flat part, switch filaments and print the 1 on top of that. Notice that there are layers at the back of the flat part that are on the same layer number as the 1 part. When I slice, the 1 gets printed at the same time as the layers for the flat part. I have each part in its own process and when I go to print I choose model by model.

How can I make this work?
