Just because you don’t have multiple print heads, it does not mean that colour 3D printing is out of reach.
I made this as a cake topper for a themed children’s party… Can you guess the theme? Of course you can!
This logo was printed in four layers,
- Black base
- Thin white layer for the ghost’s lower body
- Red for the not allowed sign
- Thick white layer for the Head and hands

How do you know when to switch colours ?
I planned the heights of the individual colours so that there are at least 2 or 3 layers per colour. Armed with that information, and the layer height, I know at which layer to change the colour. When the layer starts you don’t have to be precise, just pause, change and resume.
