MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
Love in Two Colors is a member of the 2019 Valentine Collection. At the bottom of this summary, you’ll find a list of all the members of the collection.
Though Love in Two Colors design is optimized for printing is two colors, it will print fine as a one color model. That being said, I encourage users to try to print it in two colors. Easier than you think. If you have a single color printer that has the ability to pause and change filament mid-print then you can easily make this print.
Do your own research on how to pause and change filament mid-print. Once you’re ready to try it, you just need to pause your machine when it completes 12mm of printing and switch to a second color to complete the remaining 6mm.
If you have a Prusa with an MMU2 unit, you don’t need a layered 3D model. Research how to use the advanced settings layer controls to enable a color switch at the 12mm level.
Another method included with the models of the top and bottom layers. Print each layer out in a different color. Add a little CA glue near, but not over on the bottom edges of the top layer, center the top color over the bottom color, hold in position and place a book or two on top to keep pressure on the assembly for a while and you’re done.
Models in three sizes included.
Filaments used listed below. Special shout out to the superb Inofil3D Pearl White. One of my favorites.
