very nice! great to see my design helped you. Surprised on the orientation you've chosen. I have printed several multi color versions with the image is cut into the front face rather than protruding eliminating the need for supports but I do like how there is no border with this orientation unlike mine.

I'm brand new to 3D printing, what's the best way to switch filament colors mid-print? Can you program it to pause at a certain layer or do you need to manually be there to pause it when you want to change?

I didn't pause it at all. As its printing, I simply pull the filament out and put in the new color filament. I can do it quickly enough that it doesn't effect my prints. There may be better ways, but my printer doesn't pick up where it left of very well after pausing.

I have the Creality 3 Pro, I believe it operates almost identically to the non-pro version. So it's rather easy your saying?

I actually have the Ender 3 Pro. But yeah it’s not too bad. I do it about the same way I switch filament when getting ready to print. There’s some good YouTube videos that can show you how.

Thanks! I'll post my make when I finally put the printer together this weekend.
