anyone out there dual extruding?

Recommended Posts

so I know ultimaker doesnt officially support dual extrusion, but you can just buy the parts and throw it in your machine if you want. im just wondering if anyone out there is doing that and what their results are like? I know it will require some fiddling with the machine but I'd just like to know if anyone doing it is having success with it.
