Stratasys FDM 3D Printers like the F900 and those in the F123 Series can print a variety of colors in ABS and ASA. Swapping between colors of the same material is a fairly simple process since the printer doesn’t require a tip change or recalibration - just unload the old material and reload the new one.
However, depending on what color is being swapped out, it may be necessary to perform an extra purge from the tip in order to fully flush out the old material. This step is especially critical when changing out a dark color (e.g. black or blue) to a lighter color such as ivory. Keep reading for more tips and tricks for color changing on FDM 3D Printers.
