Ultimakor 2 - Dual Extrusion Nozzoles - Dual Sizes?

Recommended Posts

Will this ever be an option??

A dual nozzle Ultimakor 2, with one larger then the other. The smaller nozzle to be used for printing the skin of the object, with th elarger nozzle for infill.

Would make for much quicker prints etc?

Dual nozzles just doesn't work very well yet. The "off" nozzle drips and makes a terrible mess. Also increasing the speed on infill reduces quality as you get over extrusion when it goes back to the skin. But if you are making parts that no one will notice (like the feet on ultimaker or gears burried in a mechanism) this could be useful.

I'm really looking forward to when this is available for the UM2. I think loading the other extruder up with the water soluble filament type and having the UM2 use that for support material will really open up a lot of possibilities that are not easily achieved up to now.
