Seemingly impossible, but no assembly is required!
So how do you put it together?
That could be cool. You'd just have to run it twice, one to print out the evens, and one to print out the odds. The only other thing I did was rotate the linear chain 90 degrees so that the 2nd print nozzle isn't dragging in all of the links. It seems to keep the separate colors more pure.

I just edited Sal's scad script to produce every other link. Alternating links use alternating extruders for a bicolor chain. I suppose if you have the same color loaded on both extruders, it would look exactly like Sal's chain, but that would be a bit pointless.

Cool! I could easily add parameters to Chain Generator to output every n:th link if someone is interested...
