How'd you program the change of color? Wondering if I can do that with prints on my CR-10.

With Cura you can add a pause at a specific layer to change your filament. There is plenty of tutorials on youtube if you don't know how :)
I selected the layer 90 for the effect on the picture ^_^

Hmm, that's pretty dope. Never knew that, I use Simplify3d. I'll have to research. Thank you!

Here's mine for pausing after layer 2, then continuing with layer 3:

{REPLACE "\n; layer 3, Z = " "; layer 3\nG28 X0 Y0\nG91\nG1 Z100\nG90\nM300\nM400\nM25\nG28 X0 Y0\nG91\nG1 Z-100\nG90\nG92 E0\n; layer 3 "}

Here's what I used to pause between layers 2 and 3 when doing 3d printed fabric tests:

{REPLACE "\n; layer 3, Z = " "; layer 3\nG28 X0 Y0\nG91\nG1 Z100\nG90\nM300\nM400\nM25\nG28 X0 Y0\nG91\nG1 Z-100\nG90\nG92 E0\n; layer 3 "}

You can do it with Simplify3D pretty easily, if you don't mind learning a little g-code (or copying someone else's):

Appreciate the information. :) I'll have to take a peek at it.

Its not melting with PLA ?

It is not melting, i tried it with PLA. did have to increase size to 103% to fit a candle in there.

I haven't tried, i'm using LED candles !
