    Always interested to see what people are doing. I'm planning to go for IDEX on my bigbox as soon as I find some time (I'll go with Björn’s version), but I've been looking at the 4 way system on the new Prusa as a possible for my Prusa i3 - that's pretty similar to the Prometheus in many ways - same basic concept, though obviously different execution.

    Either way, I think it would be interesting to see how it works out :)

    Exciting! Sounds good, I'd be interested.

    I'm interested. My Prometheus just arrived, and I'm debating over installing it on the BigBox or my older delta.

    Getting close! I kept the Titan extruders for now and have my own modified x carriage printed and installed. Should be able to get a dual extrusion test print done today... assuming I can get Simplify3d programmed correctly.

    Here's a few pics of the setup: https://goo.gl/photos/TtZxZDTbUy6nqeB67
    (Don't hate on my harnessing and especially my adjustable layer fan support ;) )

    I'm interested. I got mine but have not done much with it. Either for the BigBox or my Prusi i3.

    looks interesting... does it work? I did not install my kit yet... any change you share your design files? Source would be awesome :D

    I did get it to work, but the last print I attempted resets my printer during the first or second filament switch... No idea why. I'm running a newish RCBugfix, though, so I'm hoping it's just a firmware bug. I was out of town last week and didn't get a chance to dig into it yet. I'll share my design files and slicer scripts this week.
