So how do i go about printing this with a dual extruder? My slicing software is slic3r prusa edition

I'm assuming that you have black loaded in Tool 0, and white loaded in Tool 1. In my FlashForge Creator Pro, that's the right and left extruders respectively. Load the PandaBlack.stl file as you would normally, then select the part, click the Settings button, then click "Load part..." and load the PandaWhite.stl file. Above, you should see the list of stl files for the object. Click on each item and select the appropriate extruder.

Cool thanx :) i dont have dual extrusion yet. Im gonna get the quad multimaterial upgrade for my Prusa i3 MK2S in a few months but i just had a crazy idea. If i print both stl files separately with supports. Would it be possible to just epoxy them together???

Unfortunately not. I've made it so the shells barely intersect with each other. With a single extruder, it'd really make more sense to just print the whole thing in white and paint the relevant parts black haha

Hey so im trying to design my own panda but im doing it in 7 prints with a peg-puzzle type of design to put it all together. I am not wanting to paint it and the printer available to me only has one nose so that means only one color at a time. what I am having trouble with is the upper torso. I am doing to upper black part of the panda (upper torso+arms) as one piece but cant figure out how to get the shape of it. do you happen to have a design on the front legs/torso section of the panda and if not then any tips on designing that section?

Hey, sorry. I didn't actually make this design. It's a remix of one and all I did was selecting the model's faces, separating them, and then making sure it's all manifold. My modeling skills are limited to simple geometric shapes. Sorry, and good luck!

This is a very cute design!
