The Cyclops - a new type of HotEnd from E3D. Sneak peek and some nice pictures.
Oh man, take my money please.
Well then! Let’s see this hot end already!
Soon! Just need to finalise the design and you can see it all…
Cyclops only has one eye…
Let me know how i can help out!
whoa! awesome! My ingentis is only lacking a hotend and electronics.
@Sanjay_Mortimer1 I would love to try this on #Eustathios or #HercuLien if you need a tester.
Looks fantastic, can’t wait to get one!
I always wanted to try a tartan print
The pillar in the background makes me think single nozzle (as the name also suggests). So you seem to be mixing then purging using the pillar. I hope I’m correct, I would love to have duel extrusion and auto bed leveling. Count me in.
Seen a few designs like this about and it seems like a clever solution to the problem. Shame I’m after dual material!
Nice clean print. Would love to test drive one. Will the filament diameters need to match?
Awesome, can’t wait to see what you’ve cooked up!
Sanjay I would love an opportunity to test this new hotend.
The main issue I see with material mixing is that certain colors and manufacturers have a different “sweet spot” as to what temperature they should be extruded at. Solve the sweet spot and multi material single nozzle becomes a reality. Color blending is more complex as you don’t know how the new material will act.
Looks like they’re using a lot of material in the purges.
@Stephanie_A that’s why you need a dummy object to print. There is no reason that you couldn’t adjust the temp before dumping the excess onto the dummy object. It would become part of the filament switching gcode.
Nice. Think you need to build the tower in the back to wait until the filament mixing procedure is done and go back to the object you are printing. Right? Good idea but still some waste of filament material.
I remember you hinting at this a few months ago @Sanjay_Mortimer , that does look like a nice print hopefully we’ll be able to get purge infill in slicers at some point. will keep a close eye on this. (and yes, send @Thomas_Sanladerer one to do a vid on!)
From your result photo i think new HE are same :
I think right?
I use F.U.M and If New He are similar in full metal version is amazing HE. with this can mix (change filament without clean nozzle)
or change color (creating a cube for clean nozzle) and only one HE.
great result .
Hope to see it soon.
The wasted material seems to be quite little… Much less than I would expect. And filament is decently cheap, we are talking about wasting a few grams in an average print… And with some work in the slicer (change material on infill and a purge been for layers without enough space) it could have very little waste. I am excited to see what comes from this
