Your Prints

I had a need for certain blue colour, but don't have that color. I do have blue and white, however, so I tried to blend the colors together:

On the left, the test model. On the right, Marvin printed using the same filaments as the test model.

Works quite well actually. The trick is to print the model by alternating the blue and white filament layers. I did this in OpenSCAD by slicing the 3D text to 0.2mm slices, creating two models that make the whole text when combined. Creating a script to do this in post processing shouldn't be hard.

Of course this won't work with every color. The blue PLA I use seems to be transparent? enough to let the white kinda seep through...
I think with 0.1mm the effect would be even better. Need to get Filaswitch to support 0.1mm layers first, though Smile
