  1. Thanks for the explanation, this was the information I was after. I have to be honest I'm unsure if I put enough time into the Z model calibration. Just to clarify, with the left and right Z models am I looking for the point where the left and right measure the same height from the print bed using claipers? If so do I then adjust the Z offset according to the Z calibration PDF? many thanks
  2. Thanks for that Jia, what I was doing was leveling the bed with nozzel 1, then I would go into the dual extruder menu and set nozzel 1 offset, then change to extruder 2 and set nozzel two offset. I wasn't sure if every time leveled the bed if I had to do all of the three steps i mentioned above, but it makes sense just leveling the bed with nozzel 1 and then change to nozzel two and set it's offset. a bit silly of me. thanks for your help.
  3. I've been using this dual head system with success, it's fantastic, just a question with bed levelling though. Let's say I want to re level the print bed is the process * Use the bed level wizard using nozzle 1 * then after that, go through the process of doing the nozzle 1 offset and then nozzle 2 offset? I ask this because going through the wizard and turning the knobs on the print bed you would never be able to get them exactly the same every time, therefore making the nozzle 1 and 2 offset to the print bed higher or lower.
  4. these are the fans I used Hot end 5V https://www.digikey.com.au/product-detail/en/sunon-fans/MC30100V1-000U-A99/259-1541-ND/2757811 12V blowers for cooling https://www.digikey.com.au/product-detail/en/delta-electronics/BFB03512HHA-AF00/603-1361-ND/2560485 these work and fit great in my setup
  5. Hey thanks for your quick reply, So i guess when i mount the heater blocks I just make sure they are offset to each other, To be honest I don't know a great deal about Mark2 but that will change soon enough. 🙂 The GUI you talk about I assume is on the printers LCD like the bed leveling? hey thanks again much appreciated.
  6. First of all, well done to DXU for making this possible. Silly question here, I've noticed that both nozzles are never the same height which makes sense given you don't want to drag the second nozzle over the work of the first nozzle. Does the Z axis adjust for the different nozzle height? Also, when installing the heater blocks into the head should these be offset by a certain measurement? and if the Z axis adjusts for the different nozzle height where is this calibrated? Apologies if this question has already been covered, thanks in advance.
