In this work we consider the problem of tool path planning for low--cost FDM printers when using multiple filaments. Our method is based on three components which together reduce most of the defects found in such prints. Our algorithm first optimizes the orientation (azimuth angle) of the print so as to minimize defects. It then builds a rampart in close proximity of the model. This captures most of the strings of plastic oozing from idle extruders. Finally, we optimize for navigation paths minimizing the apparition of defects.
