Chimera on a Taz 4


Hey There: I have a Lulzbot Taz 4. I purchased the E3D Chimera extruder, as well as two Witbot MK8 extruder kits from Amazon.

The Chimera hot ends are heating up fine. However, when I try to have them extrude some filament, one of the MK8 extruders chatters and does not feed the filament through.

I'm wondering if i need to add a stepper motor to the mix? If so, can I used the stepper motors from my Taz 4 dual extruder head?
