Just read this article.

Are we going to have a new player on the field?

You mean builder?

I thought they had a single nozzle with a Y-junction where you could swap between 2 different colors.

Where if I understand correctly Autodesk wants to automatically switch between different nozzles and has a spiralized shaped nozzle?

Wonder if it will be open source, like Ember..

Yeah, but it might be enough to count as prior. The helix shape has already been done by another printer company. Can't remember the name. But they are probably infringing on the autodesk patent, as it has a priority date of october 2013
