Tutorial — Oxidizing Metal-Infused 3D Prints

In this video we’re using common household chemicals to achieve interesting oxidation effects for finishing metal-bearing 3D printed parts. Magnetic Iron PLA, bronzeFill, copperFill, and brassFill can be oxidized to achieve an aged appearance through the use of polishes and cleaning agents.  

Tutorial — Multi-Color 3D Printing Techniques

In this video we’ll show you hot swapping techniques, tips, and tricks to achieve multi-color 3D prints with a single extruder.   Use the latest Cura 2 LulzBot Edition Beta to get a sneak peek at upcoming features, including the updated pause behavior required for this tutorial.   Update your firmware to v1.1.5.19 through the Cura 2 LulzBot Edition Beta for the updated pause behavior.
