Rainbow Printing

About: You'll see ;D

3d printing is becoming more widely used now, and I wanted to show a tip that i have picked up along the way while 3d printing. Printing in different colors is fun, but it takes a lot of time to switch the colors in and out and multi-color spool is expensive. This instructable shows how to "rainbow print" or print using different colors with only one spool.
