    Is it possible to use slicr to print dual? I don't find the right setting.... I can join the two parts on screen through settings and choose the extruder buth printing doesnt work, he only prints with one extruder

    Yes its certainly doable, and I've been experimenting with it - though I don't have my bigbox properly dialled in yet..

    From memory....
    Load first STL file.
    Righ-click -> add modifier -> select the second file as the modifier
    you can then select which extruder to use for each of the parts from the right-click->options menu

    You could also try this method as explained here -> http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:124450

    Now I have Slic3r in front of me....
    Load the first part
    Right Click on the part, and select Settings
    On the parts tab, select Load Modifier

    Add the second stl
    You can then set the appropriate extruder for each part (the main part and the modifier)

    So far that's worked fine for me, so all I really need to do is get the BigBox dialled in properly.
