Brand New 5S bundle owner.   Can anyone tell me what this bracket is for?
the head makes lots of trips over to it, almost like there's supposed to be some cleaning gadget there (like my old stratasys had)

    This bracket is to switch between the two printcores. When you look on the right side of the head there is a switch.

    ya, figured that out 12 hours ago 🙂 I could never catch it in action to see what it was doing.


    nice design, think I'll copy it for my home-brew 🙂  I've been running a dual-carriage,  Worked but was never really happy with it.
