Use CANVAS for an enriched user experience or continue to use your favorite offline slicers, plus our post processing tools to print with your Palette 2S Pro.
If you're going into this wanting to only do multi-color PLA prints you'll probably be pretty happy with this and canvas (the online slicer you'll use to slice things with color). The multi-color PLA prints come out quite nice and the times I had failures they were my fault (when you're in canvas and typing in the infill speed as 100 - make sure it's on percent and not mms accidentally - it will lead to lots of failures and it's easy to overlook that you can toggle between percent and mms on the web ui). Make sure to watch some YouTube videos so you know what you're getting into regarding purge block sizes and print times. If you want to do multi-material you'll probably want to look elsewhere. I haven't had much luck with both dual TPU and multi material (after a few weeks of trying).User says:
This product is awesome! It comes with spare parts so no need to order replacements yet. The support is absolutely incredible and they actually listen to their customers for improvements and bug fixes! In order for it to work as good as possible you need to calibrate it then print several random things to get the splice and transition as accurate as possible. As you print more it becomes more accurate. You do not need a specific printer for this either. I am using a home made AM8 with a long bowden tube and setup was easy peasy. I am using a generic E3Dv6 hot end setup and have no issues with color bleed given the right transition length for the colors. Once properly calibrated I can even use some older filaments that are a bit more brittle. There are limits though. Some are just too brittle and will break in the Palette causing the print to fail. Not the fault of the Palette, but mine for not properly storing my filament or buying cheap filament (I buy some pretty cheap stuff too lol). I keep all my scrap filament for my 3D pen, but with the Palette I can now splice it all together for test prints or for support filament if I want.User says:
I really liked the idea of the Palette. It appears to be very well made. I have run a number of prints through it the shorter ones usually finished as do some of the long ones but I have had a lot of trouble with the splices of the filament breaking which causes the print to fail. I spent a lot of time working with their support people who were responsive but was not able to get the system to work 100% of the time.User says:
Bought this after joining the Palette Facebook User group and seeing everyone’s successful prints. The Palette community has been really helpful in helping me get everything setup properly, have nothing but positive things to say about my Palette and the support around it. I really like multi spool mode which has let me get rid of a bunch of near empty spools I had laying around.User says:
Love the Pallet 2pro. Great support and produces a great result.User says:
Amazing capabilities await! Canvas splicer could use tree supports or other such features.User says:
