    Can someone post concise instructions on HOW TO build, and setup an IDEX for BB? Please list or post .STL files of parts needed and firmware needed.

    Since the BB development has ended, I doubt E3D will make the IDEX plans that Greg teased us about.

    Alex Et Al, please use this thread to provide IDEX instructions.

    Better yet, the wiki. Or GitHub. A single repository that can detail 'community' approved mods. Saves people going through pages of chatter (which is good during Dev of new ideas etc). But any other times somewhat off-putting.

    Just my £$€¥0.02

    OK, then please create a WIKI to house the BigBox IDEX. Please?

    Alex, Just a heads up... the wiki does NOT need to be in California or Nevada.

    I'm also interested in converting my dual hybrid over to IDEX. I'm not sure if I should print the parts using Edge or simply use a decent PETG?

    I would also ask, do these parts need supports? They seemed very support'ish at a glance, and before I print them in edge (I haven't done a edge supported edge print, do they come off easily? so far edge sticks super well to itself)

    I printed all of the Bowden IDEX parts and they print well with no support, the ones I did not dare to do without were the fan holders placing support only under the main arch and along the inside wall of the exhaust area. AND the part that holds the 2 nema 14 motors that needs support only on 2 flat faces.

    It does need to be edited by Alex either. You can add the information from the forum there yourself.
