Project: Black'n'Yellow



  • 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 πŸ™‚










    Ready for 1st test-print in dual-mode

    Dual X calibration

    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.

    Parts used:
    ~~~~~~~~~ ~

    • sweat

    • blood

    • nerves

    • alcohol

    • some sort of Duet Wifi

    • some sort of Duex 5

    • 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

    • 24V built.

    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 πŸ˜‰

    So its more easier to use with a slicer.

    The Hotends are "parked" when in standby / not used.

    Its called "NF THC-01"

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