Sweet! and a blast from my past too!! I cannot remember which one that is. Hewey, Dewey or Lewey? One of them got torn away and it has been 45 years since I saw it last.

Different colors or paints or mix? You really did it justice as it looks like a kit you would get from CultTVMan.

Basically it was: "Pause at Z" and change filament. Simple, but quite time consuming...

I saved some time with the Mark2.

I noticed, that I still have some "spare parts"...

Why not Dual?

Mark 2 or UM3?

The model is not prepared for dual extrusion and editing of stl-files is not my favorite occupation... But it was actually printed on an early Mark 2 UM2+ iteration (a few months ago). The UM3 was only the light-box for taking pictures...
