Drawing parts to print in two different colors

First... I am new to 3D printing and ultimately 3D drawing...  I need to design a ring with degree numbers on it, which I have done, but I want to have the base ring in one color and the dial numbers in a different color when it prints..  I am building/printing on a Lulzbot Pro dual extruder, and Cura as the slicing software..   any help here would be appreciated.

    I would just design the dial numbers as separate parts (Make sure to select "New" rather than "Add" at the top of the feature when you extrude/thicken/etc to create them)

    Then, you can either export the entire part studio (right click on the part studio tab at the bottom and select "export"), or make the whole thing a composite part ( https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/12551/improvements-to-onshape-november-12th-2019#latest ) and export that composite part (right click the composite part in the parts list and select "export").  Either one of those exports will give you a single file with a few bodies in it, which you can import into your software.
