I’m looking to add a dual-extruder setup to my MPCNC. Currently, I have a DW660, vinyl cutter, and $100 laser working and just want to add another tool to the toolbox, so to speak.
I want to do some fairly large prints and use a 1.2mm nozzle for interiors to save a lot of time, but still use a .4mm nozzle for detail and exteriors. My print area is about 18" x 18"
I haven’t really been able to find folks that have dual or multi-extruder setups. I know folks have asked and Ryan’s advice has been to do a bowden style extruder with the motor mounted to the center assembly and use short tubes. Has anyone actually done that? I’m interested in more details on how to achieve that. New C-XYX with motor mounts built in? Something else?
I’ve found the dual MK8 extruder mount out on thingiverse but I’ve read that it’s a bad idea to put that much weight on the z-axis.
