Raise3D - How to 3D Print with Dual Extruders

A 3D printer with dual extruders is called a dual extruder 3D printer. The extruders of a dual extruder 3D printer are either independent or dependent.

Independent dual extruders, also known as IDEX, will be able to separate from one another and work independently during a print job. IDEX also makes it possible for one extruder to remain motionless, and off to the side while the second extruder creates a 3D printed part. 

There are several steps to consider in the process of 3D printing when using a dual extruder 3D printer. To name a few:

- Choose the Right Dual Extruder 3D Printer

- The Importance of Using the Right 3D Printing Software

- The Importance of Calibrating the Offset

- Make Sure the Model is Ready for Dual Extrusion 3D Printing
