My dear friend, do a search on the mark 2 project, it is just what you ask!!!

8 hours of printing, 1 small extra print incl. some cabling, and you are ready to go.

Everything is done for you ;-)

Happy dual printing!

short answer, just installing 2 blocks/nozzles in the UM2 head does not work. It's a waste of time to do it. Main issue, you need some kind of lifting system to avoid the unused nozzle to touch the print, or use 2 separate heads, like Mark2. Cooling is another issue.

I thought it was only a Power Problem and Firmware.

I did not think about lift the unused Nozzle.

Thank you very much now i know it.

Its to bad that no official Ultimaker 2 Dual mod is from ultimaker.

    • "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.
