Multi color/part sign with Prusa slicer

I saw somewhere a sign/logotype printed with the front side down and wondered how to accomplish this with the prusanslicer.
With a single tool printer print the first layer one color at time to create the logotype/sign and then a few layers to create the back of the whole piece.
To accomplish this it is preferred to keep the filament/color changes to a minimum.
So my idea so far is to create print for a printer with as many toolheads as colours and then with scripting replace the toolchange code with a pause to change filament.
This way one whole color will be printed and the print pauses.
Any one that has done something similar or has any input on how to accomplish this?

You would need multi-object part for the slicer. Each color is an object.
When you load all objects, slicers asks you how to treat the objects.
A single nozzle printer can be setup in slicer to call pause-macro at color change.
The pause-macro (you have to write yourself) then handles the unload, load and purge commands.
You can use a trigger button to guide the macro through the (partly manual) process.

@o_lampe Ok, that sounds great. Time to go from theory to practice then, thank you.

@fotomas Any luck with writing the macro? I would be interested. Thanks
