RMV2 and Dual Extrusion?

Post by ExplodedZombie » Tue Apr 02, 2019 11:18 pm

Hi everyone,

So I know this topic has been beaten to death, but I thought I'd see if anyone has tried, can recommend, or absolutely loathes the E3D Cyclops+ or Chimera+. And if dual E3d V6 would be better. I would primarily like to print brittle support material for the first and last few layers of supports. What I'm worried about is 'contamination' that I've read about, as well as oozing, and all sorts of other possible problems.

Anyone have good advice? I keep reading Chimera isn't the best for deltas since any mechanical inaccuracies could cause tilt.

Some context: I'd really like to print miniatures, and so far I have to either create very dense support, or live with nasty overhangs. Thinking that brittle support at like 75% density would make for much nicer overhangs.

Have you considered the "Y" feeder that SeeMeCNC sells? Keep in mind that it's only good for HE280 or SE300 hot ends though.
(The V2 can't use the SE300 unless you upgrade to a Duet, but it can use the HE280 and you get decent auto-cal with it.)

Thanks for the idea! Is the Y-feeder decent? I'll look into it. The cost will be much higher though.

After a good bit of research, I think it's probably not a good idea to print support material using a single-nozzle solution. Dual nozzle seems too risky given that I'm not sure my machine is even close to perfectly level. I will probably hold off on this upgrade or just try the dual v6 knockoffs I already have just to see how level it is.
