    Here is my latest print, I had to make a trail run first and then adjust the height to get it to print properly
    If your easily offended, then don’t open this image...

    I first started with the base, in this case it was White.

    When the head started to print the text, circle, strikethrough, and dog, I paused the printer and switched over to Black Filament.

    I let the printer continue till the text and dog were complete and only the circle & strikethrough were still printing, then as before I paused the printer and switched to the Red Filament.

    Once you have the height of your images correct, it will print each section giving you plenty of time to chance colour, it starts to print in white till you pause for the colour change, then everything after that will print in black, and when only the circle and strikethrough are left, pause again and they will then print in Red.

    This is a very easy way to print multicolour, the proper way is to pause the printer using the Gcode and retract the filament, but that was a bridge to far for me, and why make your task harder...
