Sorry if ive missed a post on this, but is there anything in the works to be able to print something using more than two of the filaments from the material station, similar to the prusa MMU?

    Hi, welcome to the community. Not that I know of. 

    It is not in the scope of functionalities for the Material Station. A switch between different materials would significantly increase the print time and we just don't think that is feasible or desirable by anyone. What would you like to use that functionality for?

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply.

    It was mostly out of curiosity, but i could see if been useful if you wanted to print a multi material or multi colour part and still use PVA support. I agree that with the current nozzle purge routine it will add too much time to a print.

     

    Cheers
