Palette 3 and Octoprint

Is Palette 3 compatible with Octoprint? I plan on purchasing a Palette soon, but if 3 is not compatible I will have to go with 2.

Is this a good question?

Hi Jaxx, Palette 3 will not be compatible with OctoPrint, but you will be able to use many of the same functions within Canvas such as controlling your Palette and printer, monitoring calibration information, and remotely starting prints. In the past, we’ve seen that updates to OctoPrint can negatively affect the plugins, so we are now better able to control the user experience.

Hi Jonny,

I don't really understand what you are saying.

Will Octoprint be obsolete when using a Palette 3 Pro?




Hi Martijn, you'd be unable to use OctoPrint with Palette 3. However, Canvas will offer a similar connected experience, where you'll be able to control the printer and Palette via the Canvas interface.


Unfortunately a similar experience is not going to be enough. My printer is 100% ran through Octoprint. Octoprint turns on my printer. In order to get this to work I would have to make canvas hub run through Octoprint which sounds like a nightmare. I strongly recommend that the Mosaic team figure out the kinks and get the Palette 3 running with Octoprint. It's a great product in theory, but they're knee-capping themselves by excluding a nearly universally used platform in the 3d printing community.


Dear Martijn,

i pre-ordered the palette3, but know i decide to cancel the order. I am not willing to change all of my workflow (physical & electronical) "only" for color-option. There should be better integrated solutions in the near future. Sad to wait for my color-prints, but changing the environment only for one Product is not an option...

I’ve just found out that it will not be supported in Octoprint for some reason, i think i’ll be asking for my money back as this is my only option.
