3D Printing is cool but most 3D Printing are single color prints or prints made in 2 colors with Dual nozzle 3D printed. If you need prints by mixing color filaments you have to be an expert user of the 3D Printer with months of experience to know when to pause the printing and change filaments to the preferred color. Until now there was no easy solution to it but with the launch of Geeetech Prusa I3 M201 it would become a child’s play.
Geeetech Prusa I3 M201 is a modified variant of the popular Prusa I3 series 3D printer. It features a unique 2-in-1-out switchable hotend which can extrude 2 filaments through one nozzle. This allows users to use the printer as a color palette, and make prints with alternating colors, blending color and gradients.
To make this possible Geeetech developed a new GTM32 control system which allows the user to control the percentage of the feed rate of the two filaments. This allows the users to make new colors by blending color and gives your prints the new found expression trough colors.
Geeetech Prusa I3 M201 comes with a custom made color templates, which allows the users to choose to print items with gradient colors. It allows the users to see the waxing and waning proportion of two filaments on the screen as it happens. Users could use multiple templates on a single print and experiments with a variety of colors, these templates can be controlled with the on board LCD control panel.
