This is my tribute to this amazing piece of hardware AND software.
CR-10 clone, Dual X, Dual Z, Dual 3in1 Hotend, 400x400x400.
Why i build this? Because over one year ago, marlin, mk4duo und some others told me: That isnt possible. And maybe because i'm multicolor addicted
Ready for 1st test-print in dual-mode
Dual X calibration
1st Dual Testprint
Middel of Dual Testprint
Finish of Dual Testprint
It was a long journey until now. Now comes 'finishing up' the 2 carriage. And ofc cleaning up the "improper" screws (which are NOT black) AND parts (which are NOT yellow OR black) which step-in as this project evolved.
- sweat - blood - nerves - alcohol - some sort of Duet Wifi - some sort of Duex 5 - some sort of Paneldue 7" - some sort of 11 stepper motors - some sort of 2x THC-01 Hotend - some sort of CR-10 S4 carriage - some sort of SSR - some sort of Keenovo 400x400 230V 1000W - some tons of "only black" screws - some shit load of cables. - some sort of ONLY black pulleys, timing pulleys, belts.....you see it on the pictures ;) - 24V built. @dc42: <3 <3 <3 for this amazing piece of software.
Thanks looks an great machine! Which 3-in-1 hot ends are you using?
I'm looking forward to seeing some amazing multicolour prints from it. And I hope you will show this machine to the naysayers too!
Its called "NF THC-01"

What do you have to do to prevent the two heads from colliding?
I assume one head has to be 'parked' at a time but how do you do that ? In the slicer ? In Duet?
the "magic" happens in Duet
So its more easier to use with a slicer.
The Hotends are "parked" when in standby / not used.

Why? [maybe it's supposed to be obvious, but if so, I don't get it.]
