What are the triangle parts for?

It would be better to have it as one file, surely? With the logo extruded down into the body so you could print the lower layers one colour and the upper layers another colour using M600 commands. Have a look at the coasters on my profile as an example.

Hi Chris,
Thanks for your advice,. The triangles are for the inside of the "A". Since the base is in white and the fill-in in black, i had no other choice than to make them separate pieces. I was not aware of the M600 command, i will certainly look this up. Thanks !


It's not supported by all printers, so have a google of your machine to see if it does. If you have a Prusa machine, you can use https://www.prusaprinters.org/color-print/ to add the command into the gcode for you - otherwise you can just open the code in an editor and find the layer height to add it manually anyway. It instructs the printer to pause and unload the current filament, and request a new one - allowing mid-print colour changes without multiple extruders.

Ah ok.
This might be out of reach for me. I'm using an heavily modified piece of junk Fabricator 2... you cannot expect to much from a 199$ printer...;-) . I'm actually considering pulling the trigger for an alphawise U20...
