Re: First dual extrusion print from a Cyclops hot end and BondTech QR extruders

I bought it with the QR. What's the issue? If you can't find the adapter, you can simply turn the extruder upside down. Martin just published an STL for a fitting for the infeed side when you do this to direct the filament in.

Re: PEI bed surface

Do you have any photos of the bottom surface of a print to show what sort of texture the plates imparts? First layer adherence is only part 1 of the print surface function. Aesthetic impact on the finished print is a secondary function for some of us. PEI leaves a beautiful in textured surface that'...

By the way, this mount will work with both Cyclops and Chimera as they share the same cold end.

Re: First dual extrusion print from a Cyclops hot end and BondTech QR extruders

Yeah, it is a process but now that I have it nailed I'll be able to do some cool stuff. The weak link now is the slicing software. I have to do some CAD/design tricks to pull this off. None of the slicers can do what I really want and even this print was a compromise from what I really would like, b...

Re: First dual extrusion print from a Cyclops hot end and BondTech QR extruders

That should be a perfect application for the Cyclops. As long as both materials will extrude at the same temp then it should be fine.

Re: First dual extrusion print from a Cyclops hot end and BondTech QR extruders

Ok, here is the finished product. This is what I've been trying to do for over a year and the combo of Cyclops and BondTech QR extruders (and my Taz and a lot of CAD and slicer trickery) made it a reality. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-0B8OXOmwIOU/VmivYZOJR9I/AAAAAAAABCU/-bssm7y4OP8/s1040-no/Fu...
