As most of us knows that most three dimensional printers prints only in one (1) color. However, multi-color 3D printers has been around for years yet remains unpopular because of some alignment problems and the difficulty to mix colors on the fly.
But after seeing some printed works of Andre Tiemann, the builder of two RepRap Prusa Mendels and the founder of Draft Print 3D (a one-stop-shop low-cost 3D print service), I’m convinced that multi-color 3D printing has arrived.
Andre spent his free time experimenting different methods of printing that enables multi-colour results using a one-color 3D printer. He even shared an awesome tutorial on how to create multi-color prints using a single extruder machine.
I have embraced the immense potential offered by the technology. The ability to create three-dimensional prototypes and production ready parts on the fly still boggles my mind at times.
