Instructions

found that .8mm text depth is about the max you can go before the hot end starts to hit on the text when printing the back.

i printed out at the text at 0.27mm layer, this is makes the text depth 3 layers thick then with out removing part i then printed the back out at the same settings.

How do you convert this for dual extrusion? Thanks!

this is the makerbot video on dual extrusion youtu.be/_p_znpJfC-4

i don't have a dual extruder, but the process is. load both files into your softwear and select the text layer for different colour, both files should be set on the build plate and alined up both files have the same outer size to make it easyer.

hope this helps.

Thanks! :)
Is there any reason you don't print the part upside down with the back printing first then the text on top?
I haven't tryed it but if you remove the foot and have a thin backing it could be done.
