"What is better, a single head extruder or dual head extruder?" - a question we have been asked on several occassions. The difference is very simple, while a single head extruder only holds one color filament, the other (dual head extrusion) can have two colors of filament. So honestly we think a dual head extruder is a preffered choice if you wish to make multi-colored 3D prints, but as it costs several hundred dollars more it is up you to decide how important multi-colored prints are.
If you are planning to use a 3D printer for art installations or making components then perhaps a single head extruder will work just fine. On the other hand, if you wish to make product prototypes or models with extra detail then multi-colored prints do give many objects, therefore a dual head extruder would be the prefered option. The dual head extruder just gives you that extra possibility of creating prints with more detail than if you were to use a single head extruder, for us that is definitly worth the extra amount.
