I currently have a single extruder (direct drive) Tronxy X8.
I am thinking about adding a second extruder, that I would use only occasionally. I really like the characteristics of the direct drive extruder, so I would not want to switch over to dual Bowden. Also adding the weight of a full second direct drive extruder for only occasional use does not seem useful.
Is it possible to use a direct drive extruder as main extruder and a (possibly detachable) bowden extruder as secondary extruder?
Is there anything in particular that I need to watch out for when mixing extruder types?
