    Now that the BigBox has been pretty much abandoned by the makers, I've given up trying to get my Dual V1.1 to work as it should. If and when I want a multi-material printer I'll get a Prusa Mk 2, so I'll be stripping down the BB and turning it into a single.

    Question: reviewing the build manual, I see the single PT100 cable is different from the Siamesed dual version, which is what I have. Does anyone know if the Siamesed version will work if it's plugged into only one PT100 amp, or will I need to buy (or somehow fabricate) a dedicated single cable?

    Thanks,

    Hans (disgusted) C.

    In case anyone else is wondering: I e-mailed BB support, and Greg replied that the dual cable will work fine.
