Is it possible to use the palette without connection to the printer?

Hi, I would like to use Palette just to automate my filament. If it detects that a spool runs out, it only should automatically splice to another spool and keep the print going. I always print with the same material (PA) and do not want to use Palette for multicolor prints. As I want to start the print directly on the printer, a connection between Palette and the printer should not be necessary. The printer should work like it has an “endless” spool of filament. Can you tell me if I can use Palette in this Case?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes, you can use Multi-spool mode “without printer’, meaning that it’ll continuously make filament without the need for it to be pulled by your printer’s extruder:

Hi Jonny Yeu, thank you for answering. For my case, I would like to pull the filament by my printer's extruder during long prints, but don't want to connect the wifi of Palette with my printer and computer. Palette and the printer should be physically connectet with the PTFE tube, but there can not be a virtual connection via wifi between Palette and the printer for my case. Can you tell me if this works as well?


@philsas Yes, that would work also. In this situation, you would use Multi-spool mode "with printer" and no connection other than the tubing is needed. Please note that Multi-spool mode is currently not available on P3, but we do plan to release this in the near future.


Thank you for your answer @jonnyyeu. This sounds great. Does the Multi-spool mode "with printer" already work on P2 with no connection other than the tubing?


Yes, it does!
