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.

Just throwing 2 fixed nozzles in your Ultimaker will not work, save yourself the trouble.

There are a ways to make it work.. but complicated.... read more here;

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
