It's the mount for the extruders and I believe it's adjustable.

Yes, it's available and I should probably remove the "beta" from the page name :)

I don't but I can take some as soon as it arrives. I'm assuming that since the production version is out us beta testers will be getting the new version soon.

Is this option not available anymore? I have an LC and I'd love to pop a 2nd extruder on it...

I'm not sure. I think they only have the dual parts for the newest plus. We could always get you a dual extruder setup if you just bought the requires parts.

Just an FYI. Printrbot recently released the files for the new plus. I have some stls that I created off of the factory dual extruder setup for the plus. In combination of the two you could easily come up with an affordable dual extruder setup.

So I got mine on my new plus. I'm having a heck of a time getting everything calibrated as the X-Y stops cause the Z auto bed leveler to be off the bed. Since there are NO installation instructions, I'm wondering if I've done something wrong. Has anyone put together an installation guide for a Dual Extruder setup with an autoleveling upgraded X-Z printrbot plus?

Basically I'm tired of slamming the print head into the Al bed. I NEVER had this much trouble with my original LC+.

I haven't heard of any successful z-x upgrades done. Let alone one with adding a dual extruder to the mix. I have a plus v2/2.2 hybrid. It started as a plus v2 and then the carriage was changed to the plus 2.1 but with dual extruders. I have the aluminum hotend mounts. I really like this setup as it was well thought out.

I have all the files made into stls for the beta and dual extruder setup for the v2 & v2.1 if you decide to go that route.

I should clarify. I have a two year old LC+. At work, we bought a brand spanking new Plus (with X-Z and autoleveler). I also purchased the new dual extruder from printrbot. From what I gather there is no single set of instructions to install the dual extruder setup on this brand new bot. There are guides for each of the single upgrades (Al exturder on a simple, Auto leveler on a simple, and Dual Extuder guide in wood not the one I have). My main issue is with repetier host (used to use pronterface) and the fact the the new Z level MUST occur somewhere over the printbed. At X and Y home, the autoleveler is floating over one of the Al linear thrust bearing blocks. While I am running the updated firmware for the autoleveler (which I believe causes Z level to occur after X and Y in the middle of the plate, repetier host keeps insisting on Z leveling @ the X and Y home position which simply will not work. Given that there were/are NO instructions on the build out for this combination of parts I'm not even sure I've put it together correctly, let alone set the printer settings in repetier host correctly.

There might not be instructions because maybe there were only 2 people who bought it? :lol:

The lack of good feedback on the upgrades has kept me at bay.

I'm not sure how many have sold, but I'm thinking about sticking the original one back on there. I would certainly hold off until someone posts a guide.

Another option would be to try and get ahold of Brook via Twitter. If you want to go that route, lemme know as I can help. I talk off and on with people from pb often so I might be able to get you some help or at least some answers. Let me know If I can help in any way.

I would absolutely be up for that. I can even document the process to kickstart a guide on how it's done. What I need is a little personal help from the experts (at least someone who knows how it SHOULD be installed). The only issue I've got is that I'll be on holiday next week so it might not be a great time to start doing this. If you can reach out and suggest it, maybe we can go from there.
