I'm trying to figure out whether the Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus can easily be extended to print with two separate filaments using the Prometheus System by DisTech Automation using a single hotend (NOT with two separate hot ends/nozzles).
According to DisTech, the Prometheus System is compatible with 3D printers that support the following:
- Dual extruder stepper motors on the controller board
- CURA slicer engine (Simplify3D support is in development)
- Marlin/Repetier based firmware (this includes almost all desktop 3D printers)
As I'm not an expert on 3D printing and don't own the Duplicator yet (making up purchase decision right now), I'd appreciate if you could help me with your past experience with Duplicator and/or Prometheus.
