    Just thought I'd say Hi. I'm the guy who's insane dual CoreXY, 5 colour printer was on the Duet stand at the TCT show as featured in Clare's blog. Just to put the record straight, I'm not part of the Duet team - I was just there as a guest.

    I've been reading your account of the 5-color Diamond with great interest!

    Hi Ephemeris. As you can gather, I have a masochistic streak which is needed for multi colour/multi material printing :)
    It's not an E3D hot end but I do use 5 Titan extruders so I hope that qualifies me for membership of this forum.

    I'll sign up to having also read some of the blog and watching the videos. Fascinating monster you've built. It looks absolutely massive. Quite a beast to keep at home :)

    I have no idea where you'd get PETG in Cyan, Magenta and Yellow. TBH, until someone designs a true mixing hot end, it's pointless. What comes out of a Diamond nozzle is akin to stripey toothpaste, not properly mixed at all. The colour is biased towards the nearest input so a printed object will have a different colour depending on what side you view it from. IMO You might as well use Blue, Red rather than scratch about trying to find Cyan, Magenta.
