    so today when assembling my BB i noticed that the hotend assembly was that of a single driver, and after further looking around i found out i had only enough parts for one spool holder, the kit has 2 hotends and 6 motors but with only a single motor/hotend mount? could somebody explain to me why? is the hybrid just an inferior version of a dual?
    non titan btw

    Can you post a picture of your X carriage? The hybrid only one has one stepper mounted on the carriage as the other is in a Bowden configuration on the rear panel. There should be two holes for the extruders to mount to though.

    That is the correct hybrid carriage. I haven't built a non-Titan hybrid but you should have parts for two extruders, one that mounts to the X carriage and the Bowden on the back. You'll need to take the missing spool holder parts up with BigBox support, I'm sure they'll sort you out quickly. I've had a couple of replacement items and they've always sent them within 24 hours by next day courier.
