Dear Gryn,

Could you maybe explain, at what height you change the filament or is it just a estimate? Could you put in a few words of the proces?
Thank you in advance and great job!

Kind regards from Denmark

Hi Tobiasen,

For most of them, I think you print the color for the first 1mm or 2mm, then do a color switch. For the temperature marker, I did blue for I think one layer (0.2mm) then purple, then red (for several) then finally switch to white. If you use prusa-slicer you can easily see where you'd want to add the color changes.

Here is the release article about when they added the feature: https://blog.prusaprinters.org/prusaslicer-2-release/#10

If you are still having trouble, I could check my file but I don't have it handy at the moment.

Thank you Gryn,
I´m on the Cura, so I´ll try and download the pause at height plugin :)

I would like to print them in real Multicolor mode. Do you still have the original files and could provide some STP files to easily define the different sections for the colors?

These are designed to be printed by changing color at certain heights. You don't need to do true multi color mode to get a nice effect! :)

Thanks for your answer. I know it isn't necessary, but I would like to do so. :)

what's the venus marker for??

Hi Renschler, there is an expansion you can get which has a Venus track!


Did you print them all with two colors and then paint the temperature one to get the red?

Most are just one color change, yes, but the temperature marker is several!

I bought these from the designer on Etsy before they posted them here. They're fantastic! Especially the Temperature Marker.

Nek0, thank you for your kind words! It's been very fun designing these tiles and markers. I'm glad you are enjoying them!
