Cyclops switching extruder from e3d

Mon Jan 26, 2015 7:38 pm

So, I'm running a small printer (Printrbot Metal Simple) and have been really interested in E3D's new color-switching hotend.

Reducing ooze, light weight print head, maintaining available build space, all good things on a small machine. I know my printrbot would require a second stepper driver (there's an expansion board available), but I'm wondering if S3D would have the tools to print from two extruders through one hotend.

Yup! I have used this before. It's pretty easy to setup since they already give you a lot of configuration options.

Let me know if you need help setting it up! (the support guys did a great job guiding me the first time)
