Prepare your model separated in multiple .stl files or .amf/.3mf bundle. You can start by using sample objects from our Drivers & Apps bundle. As the sheep pictured above.

If you prefer to use your own model, please visit our guide: Creating MMU models: Export model from Fusion 360
Select a file or multiple files. Drag and drop them directly into PrusaSlicer window. You can also use the menu File - Open Project in Prusa Slicer.
PrusaSlicer recognizes a multi-part object and offers you to import it as a single object. Click "Yes".

Use the filament colors as you are going to load them into your MMU2S.

After you chose a color, repeat the same for each filament you are going to use.
In the Extruder field, assign a correct extruder to each part of the object. You should be able to see the object in the colors it is going to be printed with.
