    Hi E3D,

    I have assembled my Big Box Dual however one part broke when I inserted one of the screws into it.

    My question is that I would like to print a replacement part and I may also want to print the revised v1.1 parts (if/when a dual direct drive Titan is made available), for consistency I want to print all the parts in black Edge filament, originally it was mentioned that this would be available a few months ago, however it still doesn't appear to be listed on your site, do you know when this will be available?.

    Hi Ray,

    You may get a faster response if you email them. Though a post in a forum is good knowledge-sharing. :) hope you get an answer soon!

    Are all of the BB parts printed with Edge or is an addition material used? The reason I ask is can I print the entire hybrid with XT or do I need HT as well?

    You will need some parts in HT, they are in a seperate folder called high temperature

    I reprinted the carriage in XT and it does indeed look indistinguishable from edge.

    Do you think that XT will have all the same shrinkage/expansion parameters as Edge at different temperatures? i.e. can you mix parts that screw/bolt together or should all parts that physically get assembled together be re-printed in just one material?

    I just saw a tweet from RichRap with a new box of Edge. Does anyone know when it will be available for purchase?
