This firmware took approx 10 months to write / test.
Because this isn't something printable, the best appreciation you can show for this work is to encourage others to use it by keeping it on the Thingiverse front page. Thanks to those who have done this already.

That symptom usually means that the setup directions were not correctly followed. Usually the "reset motherboard to factory settings" wasn't done from RepG 40r22 - Sailfish's Machine > Onboard Parameters. It can also happen by using the wrong slicing profile such as using a slicing profile from a Rep 2 on a 2X. That because the Rep 2 can park the extruder farther to the left than a Rep 2X can. So, you have to be sure to select the correct machine type in RepG. And if you try to use someone else's slicing profiles (e.g., Wingcommander's Rep 2 profiles), then you have to adjust them for your bot's geometry.)
Since you have a Dup 4, I don't know offhand what is the correct slicing profile. I don't myself know if you should be use a Rep 1 dual profile or a Rep 2X profile. However, whatever profile you use will impact where the head is parked while waiting for heatup. And if the head is parked too far to the left or too far forward, then it hits the front or side of the bot. Of course, you can always adjust the start.gcode in the profile to prevent that. But that assumes some familiarity with editing gcode.

Printing out the attached "MakeByASailfish", at 100 Micron
- Download the zip
- Set deprime in your acceleration settings to 0
- Replicator: Using Printomatic, generate for dual extrusion with 100% fill,
120mm/s feed rate, 0 shells, 0.1mm layer height, and 200mm/s travel feed rate
- ToM with LCD: Do the same as replicator but use Pause@ZPos for 1.02mm to change
