    My r1+ printed out of the box....6 months later a few cheap upgrades it printed well out of the box...with HUGE help from good people like @WheresWaldo and @mark tomlinson helping me out. Its a recomended printer to upgrade. Plug and print is a couple thousand more :)

    I saw the post title and I got a Wanhao duplicator 4 probably close to CTC Duplicator 4. I got mine on ebay used with very low operating hours <15. and with duel extruders. I can't tell you how much a pain it is to set it up and still get messy prints. The novelty wears off quickly.
    It's isn't all bad but I just use it for single nozzle only now.

    You are not alone. Given the challenge of getting a single nozzle offset from the bed correctly the challenge of getting two done is hard with current tech. That doesn't even consider the difficulties in modeling and slicing :)

    After working with a few different multi-extruder systems we found it easier to model around it and print different parts from different materials and then assemble.

    ... old thread yes ... but I'd have to agree when I saw this print.
