    I wired the hotends as showed in the pictures but when I try to move the Dual Hybrid carriage all the way to the left (home end) the heater cartridge wires rub against the X idler bracket. Have other people had the same problem? Do I need to somehow tie off the wires to the IR sensor frame?

    Hi Gene,
    Yes, I had the same problem... all I did is put some extra effort organizing the cables. Try bending heater cable closer to the heater block so the cables don't protrudu too much beyond the Hybrid carriage.

    Also check that the PT100 plug doesn't get in the way, you may need to fold it back on itself - I had a similar problem and had to look very closely at the build manual picture to see how the cables were routed.

    I matched the build manual exactly and ive had no problems. Just bring them closer to the carriage and route the cables neatly.

    Thanks, folks! I wound up removing the cable ties and rearranging the cables and that worked for me as well!
