can you share your tool change script please ?

Here it is (slicer toolchange deactivated):
Notice, that I have a nozzle cleaning station at the left side of the printer. I will add a picture. Other parking coordinates, purge lengths and bigger prime pillar needed without a nozzle cleaning.

Mounting holes on the X-gantry for the original MK10 Hotend? Or which printer do you use?
Think I'll make the changes on weekend.

I've a tronxy x5s with original Extruder.

Last question: with or without bl-touch?

I've it, at the moment I use to manual level my bed but I would like to implement it in my mks sbase new board.

Nice idea. I can't live without on the X5s.

Yes I know, too difficult to manual level.

Just made some tries for fun. Is it possible to mount the Chimera on the top side (push fitting side) like in the picture?

The ChiDuMo (Chimera Dual Nozzle Montage) for Tronxy X5S

Does this fit also kimera with double nozzle?

No. The dual nozzle chimeras have different mounting holes. (http://ivbsolutions.net/product/3d-printer-2-input-switching-bowden-hot-end-0-4mm-1-75mm-w-add-on-dual-heads__trashed/)
It seems, that the height of the nozzle on dual chimeras, are the same as mine. If additional mounting holes are added, it could fit.

I will improve the ChiChiMon soon and try to add a mounting for your needs. Send me a link which Chimera you mean.
