How does this work?

I set up P2PP with Prusaslicer and sliced a multi-color print. I then tried to load that into Chroma and got an error “chroma failed to detect any layers that contain transitions". Setting up p2pp gave me first this error:

“wipe tower is currently only supported with the relative extruder addressing”

and once I fixed that I was given a bunch of errors after slicing. These can be broken into 2 separate issues.

Issue 1) was that all purging volumes were set to 70mm^3. This was set per the set up instructions.

Issue 2) [containing many lines with all the same error] The minimum splice is less than the 80 that entered in the line: ;P2PP MINSPLICE=80

I assume the print can be run even though I have these errors. Error 1 can be addressed as I work with the P2PP to dial in settings and Error 2 must be acceptable otherwise how can people print smaller, more detailed prints with the P2PP plugin?

I loaded the created gcode in chroma and got the ““chroma failed to detect any layers that contain transitions" error mentioned above. I also loaded a 2 color gcode sliced in Cura for an IDEX printer in and that loaded just fine. It did create an unneeded purge block, but I assumed that to be correct with all things considered.

I noticed that Chroma does not allow for any modifications to the print. It just added the purge block. I was under the impression that Chroma would allow me to make changes to the print.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hey @jj1212120, thanks for reaching out. If your workflow is PrusaSlicer -> P2PP plugin, you do not need to use Chroma. The P2PP plugin will create the print files for Palette and your printer. All modifications can be made via the slicer before running the files through P2PP.
