    I did my first print with two colours and I used both nozzles for each layer.
    I won't say that I didn't like the result but the whole printing process wasn't nice. I had to constantly watch the printer for four hours cleaning up the mess that the plastic made, didn't matter if I used the oozless script and the shield.
    Is there anything I can do to make the process less prone to failure without a constant guard?
    I'm using Edge at 220 for both sides.

    as far as im aware the BB dual is a very experimental model and so is dual extrusion in general, you could try lower print speeds and tinkering with the temperature, maybe change the flow rate or possibly write the gcode yourself(wouldn't recommend but you're welcome to try lol)
    tl;dr: dual extrusion is a pain and is hard to get working.
