    Can anybody tell me if I can get two different coloured materials on a model when getting it manufactured in strong flexible plastic? I am using inventor and going to save my assembled .iam model file as an STL file, but doing see any way of getting two different materials.
    I am looking to get the embossing on a product a different colour so that it stands out more.

    The only colour printing performed by Shapeways is in Full Colour Sandstone (FCS).

    You cannot supply colour information in an .stl file - you will need to use one fo the file formats that support it.

    To add to that, you could but the emboss in a different file to order as a separate part to assemble yourself.
