    Previously (yonks ago) there was some debate as to what versions of the BB there were 1.0 1.1 etc and what "Hybrid" meant.

    After a quick search I am none the wiser.

    Ok so it's a BB with two extruders (I assume)

    but then?

    Does it always refer to a BB with a Titan?
    or
    A BB with one Bowden? and....?


    or?

    I think Hybrid was a combination of Direct and Bowden. i.e. a single direct extruder mounted in the print head, and a bowden extruder mounted on the rear of the box. Titan does't really come into it, though that was the extruder I think typically used mounted on the rear (due to it's size and shape)
