The BigBox printer with a Chimera hotend in a hybrid configuration. A alternative to using two v6 hotends.
This is a alternative carriage for the BigBox printer using the E3D Chimera Hotend in the Hybrid extruder configuration, using the E3D Titan.
This is one part of six which makes up the chimera extruder variant, there are two other parts which are required to allow the Chimera to be used, the rest of the parts can be sourced from the original BigBox hybrid carriage.
I was surprised that BigBox themselves did not use the chimera hotend, so when the design files were released I adapted the carriage to use the chimera hotend with the Titan extruder. This allows the nozzles to be closer together, lightens the carriage in comparison to a dual using 2 E3D v6 hotends, enables easier switching between normal hotend blocks and volcano blocks and allows the cyclops to be used.
I haven’t redesigned the print fan, so I am using the original which is now out of line with the two nozzles, but from my testing its still performs very well.
The other parts which make up the chimera variant can be sourced from my storefront.
