Third Round

I did a quick volumetric study last night and this morning to explore the issues implicit in docking MK2 extruders in my godzilla reprap design. Not to many problems popped up.

The design accomodated 5 MK2's in a row or 10 in two rows if you sized the filament can down slightly and turned it on its side. One of the big cans will give us 50-60 hours of continuous operation. If you had two extruders of the same specification you could insure pretty much uninterrupted operation.

It seems most reasonable to have the dock use spring steel clips and put a servo driven coupling device in the 3D positioning head.
