The Benefits of Printing with Dual Extruder 3D Printers

Among the many characteristics that distinguish FDM 3D printers, is the number of extruders they are equipped with. Some FDM printers can have multiple printing heads. The 3D printers that come with a single extruder have certain limitations. Unless the filament is changed in the middle of the print, one cannot make objects using different filament types and colors. Double-extrusion, or dual extruder 3D printers, allow the user to print one object using multiple materials and colors. Generally speaking, the idea of multicolored objects sounds much better as compared to monotonous plastic blocks. Double extruder 3D printing devices really start to shine when you include different filaments in the same 3D print.
