The Dual Y Carriage kit contains everything you see in the pics.
- Lightweight Aluminum Y Carriage with spots for 2 hotends
- Adjustable Hotend Mount
- Hotend Clip for holding Groovemount Hotends
- Dual Fan Shroud and mounting brackets printed in High Temp Resin (225C max)
The adjustable hotend mount is locked onto a special rail in the Dual Y Carriage with 2 m3 nuts and bolts. The nuts fit in a slot on the back of the rail, and the screws go in from the side, allowing you the abililty to adjust the height of the 2nd hotend from the front of your printer without having to tear anything apart to get to the adjustment screws. The nozzles are 25mm apart from each other.
The fixed hotend mount uses any of the hotend mounts that we sell, for Mosquito, E3dV6 or J-Head hotends. If you choose to put a mosquito mount for your adjustable hotend, you will have to use a groovemount adapter for it, as the adjustable rail won't allow the use of a non-groovemount adapter.
The Dual Output fan shroud was custom designed for us by James Tongue to work with our Dual Hotend Y Carriage and are provided in the kit as a high temp resin print. Resin is FunToDo Industrial Black or Red and is good up to 225C.
We also have a modified BMG mount, actually, 2 of them. They are designed to fit over the fixed or adjustable hotend and can be downloaded from Thingiverse. The other hotend mount is assumed to be using a bowden setup. Obviously, you may change these as you see fit, or even make an adapter to use the Dual BMG extruder. We have left a lot of choice up to the end user on the implementation of this system.
Please Note: The use of this Dual Hotend Y Carriage will cost you approximate 45-50mm in the Y axis on your printer.
The Mandala Rose Works Dual Hotend Y Carriage was tested and approved by J. Steve White of Railcore Labs.
