Palette 2 takes up to four filaments and combines them into a single filament strand. This strand is then fed to your printer, enabling your single-extruder printer to create multi-filament prints!
Drive: Palette 2’s all-metal drive systems, inspired by those on industrial FDM machines, accurately control filament to ensure the right lengths are driven from each input.
Cut: A rotary cutter system slices filament to ensure a clean, low-resistance cut, time after time.
Connect: Palette 2’s updated Splice Core connects filaments together end-to-end before passing them through a machined PTFE (Teflon) channel and splicing them together.
Cool: The newly spliced filament is passed to our buffer are to cool and ensure that it keeps tight dimensions before being passed to your printer.
Calibrate: There’s no need to attach our Scroll Wheel to your printer anymore as it is now built inside of Palette 2, allowing for more precise calibration and a streamlined Palette experience.
Take your Palette 2 experience farther with improved features and functionality
For high-demand printers and workhorse makers, we offer the Palette 2 Pro.
Palette 2 Pro includes:
Palette 2’s improved splice mechanism creates stronger and more reliable bonds between filament.
Simplify and enhance the entire printing process by wirelessly connecting your printer, Palette 2, and computer using CANVAS Hub (sold separately).
Several multi-color models printed in PLA.
Spaceship printed with Palette 2 using supports.
Multi-color guitar picks printed in PETG for durability.
Watch bands made from flexible TPU.
Q: Does Palette 2 work with 2.85mm or 3mm filament?
A: Sorry, no! Palette 2 only works with 1.75mm filament.
Q: What materials does Palette 2 work with?
A: Palette 2 supports several combinations of materials. A full list can be found on the Palette 2 multi-material printing guide at http://mm3d.co/multi-material.
Q: How do Palette 2 and the printer know which color is which?
A: Each color/material is a separate model. If you’re printing in 4 colors/materials, you will need 4 different model files. You can find models at http://mm3d.co/stuff-to-print or learn how to split 1 STL into multiple models at http://mm3d.co/meshmixer. The model is sliced as a multi-body G-code file. The G-code file is processed in Mosaic Chroma (free, easy-to-use software) or CANVAS (our web-based slicer/customizer/modifier) to create a new files for the printer Palette 2 with instructions on when to switch between filaments.
Q: Any software requirements?
A: Mosaic CANVAS software (free at https://canvas3d.io) or Chroma software (free software that accepts G-code and tells Palette 2 how much of each filament is required) works on Windows (7, 8, 10 or higher, 32-bit and 64-bit), macOS (Mountain Lion/10.8 or newer), and Linux (x64, tested on Ubuntu 16.04).
