Hello,

I like so much this design, but i'm having problems with the filaments changes. I dont achieve a clean transition between two colors. could you provide more information about, the software, layer height, bottom layers . uppers layers, infill pattern?

I'm using ultimaker cura, ender 3, 0.1mm layer height, 2 bottom layers and 2 upper layers, 20% infill with triangle pattern

Hi, I see your setup is different than mine.

Prusa printer/slicer
.15mm layer height (probably don't need lower than this)
I think it was 5 top layers and 4 bottom
15% grid infill

I think all you need to do is increase your top layers so the infill doesn't show through and it gives the colors some more solid layers to hide whats beneath them. The cheekbone parts of the helmet only allow for maybe 2 layers so that part can be tricky to 100% hide the color below it. Also, when you change colors, its important to try to remove excess oozing filament from the nozzle just before it goes back to the print, otherwise once it hits the print it squishes a glob at the start of the layer (which I think I see on the left edge of your print, red glob). I use a tongs made of PETG to remove oozing filament.

I like your red for the visor, I'll have to make one like that. Let me know if you have any more questions.
