    DIY Full Color Mixing 3D Printer

    This is awe-inspiring Jason! You mentioned in your colour mixing video that the people who designed the diamond hotend are considering doing a 5 in 1 hotend? Where did you hear this? I can't find any sources about it online. Also if they don't happen to produce a new nozzle have you considered adding flux capacitors to the three inputs on the diamond to double the amount of filaments you are allowed? it's a project these italian makers are working on http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:301982. You could add PVA in the sixth channel so you can make some awesome prints that require no clean up. I was also wondering what your opinion is on using this setup once black and white are added as a method to do full colour figurines of 3d scanned people.

I was also wondering what your opinion is on using this setup once black and white are added as a method to do full colour figurines of 3d scanned people. I'm worried that the transitions colours required to do small details like eyes or lips would waste a ton of filament. The other concern would be the difficulty of getting a slicer to read a .fbx or .ply file and then convert it into ratios of how much each extruder needs to push out filament to meet that colour profile.
