Multi-material and Multi-color Printing
Multi-color and multi-material printing is one of the key features of Voxelizer. We made sure that applying and changing colors to your prints was as simple as possible.
If you have selected a toolhead or a printer that allows multi-materiality from the welcome screen the Colors tab will appear in the Settings Editor. Here you have all you need to make your multi-color or multi-material prints stand out.
To apply a material to an object, just drag and drop it. Alternatively, you can right click on the object and apply the material from there.
There are three kind of material: Simple, Gradient and Texture.
- Simple material applies a single gradation of color to the whole object. It can correspond to one of the filaments you are using, or, if your extruder allows color blending, a mix between them.
- If your extruder allows color blending, the Gradient material will apply a smooth transition of color to your object from the bottom to the top.
- The Texture material will take an image, map it to your object and apply the relative gradations of color to it.
In order to modify a material, just click on it. If you want to create a new one, press on the + icon.
Keep in mind also that you can apply different filament settings for each kind of filament that you are using. For example you could apply a PLA or ABS preset to your left extruder and a PVA or HIPS preset to the support on your right extruder.
Happy multi-color printing!
