A few months ago I watched a youtube video from a trade show in which a vendor was showing their dual filament Y adapter on a MK3(s).  I don't remember the exact video (Toms3D, 3DPN, etc.) and have gone through a bunch of their content trying to re-find the folks who were making/selling the adapter but so far haven't found it.  As I recall it looked very much like the SeeMeCNC Y adapter below but was tinted slightly green (I could be wrong here.)  I'm hoping someone in the community might remember the video and help me track the vendor.

I recently watched 3DPN talking to the individual from https://www.3dchameleon.com/

It certainly sounds like the vendor you are looking for.

It was the first video in this fabbaloo post:

Thanks!  That's exactly the video I saw.  Neat idea similar in concept to the MMU1 but it sounds like support for direct-drive extruders is experimental.

Using the y-axis to push a button to switch extrusion drives is a brilliant hack!!!

However, for the price, I would rather have the prusa MMU!

If you get the chameleon, please let us know how it works out!!
