What is Dual Extrusion? #3DPrinting

Are two heads actually better than one? nozzle? Here’s a quick overview of dual extrusion 3D printing. Dual extrusion is when you 3d print with multiple filaments.

You can mix colors or different materials with a print head that has two extruders. With two spools loaded, the printer alternates between them by printing one at a time.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
