    all the dual extruder would be for is soluble supports. Which has it's own issue.

    The cape, collar and elbows would need supports.

    But it's just as easy to do that with one extruder as two -...

    well looking at the machine and your settings, I'd have to say NONE of it goes hot enough.

    yeah nylon strings, just the nature of the beast.

    the 645 is probably as good as cheap nylon gets that can be printed without a heated chamber. Best on the planet is Mymat nylon from spain.

    nope - no dual extruder.
    To be honest, it sounds like something that would be really useful.
    I do have a dual extruder (well 2, on one I simply replace the second extruder with a plastic 'model')...

    your bed is not level.
    The filament curling under is a sign that the nozzle is too close to the bed.

    Either that or the gantry is not level.

    basically that's it :-)

    not that easily. But what you actually do is print it with maybe 15-25% infill and a thickish skin. so there is an internal matrix makes it very strong while still not using a lot of filament :-)

    right - that makes a bit more sense.
    Still looks too weak to be practical, also I don't see how you get a 200:1 gearing.

    'fuel' - filament is relatively cheap, or really expensive if you look at it another way.

    Going by what I oay in the uk, you're looking at around $15-$25 a KG for pla (poly-lactic acid). The most...

    so what;s wrong with a tried and tested system that we know works ?

    There are definite design issues with a one tooth setup.

    Hmm, a 4 foot long belt is going to struggle.
    Makes a lot more sense to have a motor each end with much shorter belts.

    You're going to need big arse motors anyway.

    okay, you do appear to be somewhat obsessed with this.

    Some of the better i3's come in large pre-assembled chunks. So yes you could dissassembly them. But the more you do the more you risk damaginf the wiring and connections.
