An update on my dual x-carriage Bukobot printer project: I’ve just finished implementing a software enable-able “duplication mode” for the Marlin firmware. From the normal dual extruder mode, it allows you change into a mode where you can print two arbitrary sized objects using the the independent x-carriages (as long as they fit on the print bed of course). I added a video of it in operation here: http://youtu.be/Mdj5iZ5B2Dg. The Thingiverse link is here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:115885 (where you can also see a video of the main reason why I did this project - for 2 color prints).
