    Hi All
    I need some Advice.
    I would like to build a printer that has more than one print head.
    But i want the other print heads to print the same thing as print head one.
    So basically i want to combine 2, 3 or 4 printers into the one printer's build area.

    Mechanical i know this is very easy, but its the electronics and the controls that i am not sure about.
    all the print heads would be spaced out on the same axis drive, so the x,y,z movement can all be controlled from the one controller, its just the extruder control that i am not sure how to piggy back the control from the first one off?

    Any one have any ideas?
