Should be noted that while this technically works... I abandoned the project a few months ago for the IttybittyDual extruder by Clough42.

Dual extruder. Prusa i3V 12". Half remixed Lulzbot flexystruder for 1.75 filament. Half Bowden. E3D V6.

10-15-15 added a new version with a rear mounted servo. This allows more room for print fans. I also added a fan mount that hold two 50mm radial blowers.

how does the idler work? is it just a screw pressing on the filament?

yes. There are better options out there now. This was a mashup of the Flexystruder by lulzbot and a standard Bowden.
Its just a bolt applying pressure to the filament. It worked well but wore out the inner plastic frequently.

Could this be modded to use Hexagon hotends?

I'm not sure. I abandoned it and installed the ittybitty double flex v2. Www.clough42.com
