We 3D Printed two different colors in our Guardian Shield project. The main pedant (Sheikah symbol) and outer bezel are 3D printed in two different colors. A 3D printer with a dual extrusion toolhead isn’t required to achieve these parts. Instead, we can 3D print two colors by using a special pause option in our slicing software. Basically, we print the part in one color, pause the print at a specific layer, then change the filament, and resume printing. This “stacking” method is quite easy to achieve using slicing software like CURA and Simplify3D.
