The new mini bowden extruder is available to download from the dev branch of our github repo https://github.com/reprappro/Mendel/tree/devhttps://github.com/reprappro/M.... You'll need a new hobbed insert, we should begin selling them as spares shortly.

Nice. Is this the cone used as an example in the slic3r homepage? Is your new Bowden extruder available for download?

Once you've built the entire model with every colour, just chop and cut out material or deactivate features until only one colour remains, save as an STL, and rinse repeat for the remaining colours. Then the STLs can be loaded into the RepRapPro Slicer software for printing - it's still beta but functional and print quality is improving by the day. We're working on modifications to Slic3r - it will do multi-colour prints - but it doesn't handle extruder changes very well at the moment. An openscad script for one of our test pieces is included in ="thingiverse-806fec5af7f5b48b8a31a003e171f3fb:disqus" href="http://disqus.com/thingiverse-806fec5af7f5b48b8a31a003e171f3fb/jmgiacalone 's link for reference.

how do you program for multi colours?
