    Hi,

    I was wondering how much purging takes place with both of these hotends.

    I read that the cyclops need 3mm³ to fully purge one color so that requires a purging column, so would the Chimera be able to avoid that? Can it the retraction be set well enough that there is no need for a purging column here as well?

    Cheers

    The Chimera is effectively two separate hot ends so what ever works with a standard E3DV6 should work for the Chimera.
