Experimental Dual-Extrusion Buddy 4000 Face

Happy 2014 everyone!

To start off the new year, here was a small and fun experiment we did lately. Damian G all the way from Sweden has a Makerbot 2X, and he wanted to try printing out pieces for Buddy 4000 in dual-extrusion. We worked on the files and sent them to each other via email. After a few tries, there was a good result!

The layers of the accents didn’t have to be embedded very far into the other layers. They also had to extend a few layers higher than the base print, otherwise the filament would get mushed together. It seems quite tricky to align two extruders.

Thanks to Damian for having the patience to try this out with us! Pretty fun!
