Is the Pro2 Capable of Simultaneous Dual Extrusion (Ditto Mode)?

I think I understand these printers do not run on Sailfish firmware. Nevertheless, in Sailfish, there is a "Ditto Mode" which sends commands to both nozzles simultaneously, so many small parts may be printed quickly.

Is the Pro2 capable of printing the same object through both nozzles simultaneously? What slicer or other settings would need to be changed in order to accomplish this on this machine?

Don't really think Pro2 is going to support this feature. As we only drop the printing nozzle and will rise the unused nozzle up. So the two nozzles will always at different height.

The nozzle switching mechanic does not allow both nozzles to be at the same height.
It would also does not make much sense because the nozzles are just a few millimeters apart. You would only be able to print really tiny parts in ditto mode.
