How does it work?
We developed software which allows to change the active percentage of both extruders in your G-code while printing. For example, printing from 100% yellow (bottom) to 100% pink (top) will create a gradually orange hybrid. The best way to explain how color mixing works is to compare it with toothpaste tube. It is like squeezing 2 colors through 1 opening.
