Tips for printing dichromatic filament

Dichromatic / dual colour filaments print the best when the outside perimeters of the part are all printed in the same direction for each layer, not all slicers do this by default. You can view the direction of the tool path in slicer preview.

PolyLite Dual Silk PLA is wound carefully to ensure correct colour alignment on the spool.
To achieve the best result, make sure the filament doesn't twist in the feeding path. If the
filament twists during printing, the position of the two colours will shift throughout the print resulting in a striping effect. Some users find this effect desirable while others don't. Some level of twisting is common with most 3D printers on the market but excessive twisting may be more likely with some printers depending on their spool mount, hot end and extruder design. Using a high quality dual geared direct drive extruder and mounting the spool in a straight position that avoids twisting can help reduce this striping effect.

Smaller melt zones are better for dichromatic / dual colour filaments. This effect works because our 3D printers print with a laminar flow and so the two colours don't mix. Volcanostyle hotends or CHT-style nozzles can produce mixing that reduces the dual-colour visual effect.

It can be useful to print an alignment coin to tell you exactly where the colour change will occur. The angle will be different for every printer setup, but we have found that if the printer and spool stay in the same orientation, the alignment doesn't change from spool to spool.

Storage: It is recommended to store PolyLite™ PLA Dual Silk in the PolyBox™ to prevent
moisture absorption which will lower the quality and the mechanical properties of the print. If
the filament has absorbed moisture it can be dried at 55˚C for 6 hours in a convection oven.
