Thanks for telling me about the X-carriage. I'll change it. I have to remove it anyway when I receive more ball bearings. I'm running the carriage with 2 bearings too few. It works but isn't fully constrained correctly.
Pulley extenders, I mean. They're not symmetrical, the side that sticks out further is meant to clear the 360 bearing, while the L-shaped side aligns with the belt clamps on the 180 bearing side.
I've replaced some of the quick'n'dirty hacks I did at NYCR to get it working. In the process it's becoming more yellow/black. For now it's gonna be single material again. The monolithical proprietary BfB electronics: "they'll just have to go..." (HHGTHG ref.) Better to have a stable single material demo machine that works than a non-working demo machine. Plus, dual-head restricted the X-travel too much. I'll get multi-material running on one of my Darwins, enough place for another toolhead or two.
