    Hi,

    Are there any plans to manufacture a lifting dual nozzle system? They seem to be the best solution (maybe after IDEX which is more complicated) for dual material printing but there sure is a lack of commercial options in this field. Could it be due to some kind of unexpired patent preventing their release?

    Thanks.

    I was told in 2014 that Stratasys had patents covering both auto-lift nozzles and see-saw dual nozzles.

    So Ultimaker 3 and Dglass3D have found a way around these patents?
