    Why the two extruders are not on the same arms of the printheads. This causes more hardware and a rigorous synchronization?
    pourquoi les deux extrudeur ne sont pas sur les mêmes bras des têtes d'impression. cela occasionne plus de matériels et une rigueur de synchronisation?

    the two extruders can't be on the same arm basically because the arm is cantilever. two direct dive in cantilever arm just doesn't sound right to me.

    regarding synchronization between the two I'm hoping it will be just an initial headache of getting the two arm to be in the same plane when I attach them to their respective Zs carriages. Once locked, that arm is not going to tilt or wiggle

    Finished BOM. this is not a cheap one.... as expected for getting all genuine part including gates belt. All in all including all electronic and controller of choice (duet wifi and the expansion board) it's a $1300 printer... if you start from scratch and have nothing.

    that's a steep price to test my concept works or not...

    alternatively I could salvage my one and only working printer to bring the cost down for me. hm... decision decision.
