    nice video. i’m getting gaps between my colors. i notice that your colors are nicely integrated.
    i am using 123D and Cura.
    my model is a key fob consisting of a single letter within a square base. in 123D my two objects are completely touching since i used the letter to carve out a space in the base. however, there are gaps between the letter and the base. (see attached) so i tweaked all the letter-facing base surfaces 0.05mm in toward the letter, essentially making the base overlap with the outer edges of the letter. i also set Cura to overlap colors by 0.15.
    i still get gaps in the same places. it’s almost like my adjustments were ignored. i want 0 gap between the 2 colors.
    suggestions anyone?

    I can try slicing & printing your file.

    Hello Shackman,
    does this only happens with your design or with other prints as well?

    as suggested by @phill i printed the calibration gcode and it definitely needed some tweaking. once i got the test calibration design perfect, (took about 3 tries), it started printing dual colors correctly.
