Constant filament splices failing and Error 131
I’ve been trying to do some test prints with the Palette 3 Pro and every time the print fails due to the filament breaking at a splice with simple PLA filaments. It works fine most of the time but it only has to fail once for the entire print to fail, which is exactly what happens. I tried a lot of different settings with Splice Tuning but it seems even with settings that work for most of the print, sooner or later a splice ends up failing. Sometimes when this happens the Palette gives an Error 131 and stops the printer, while other times the printer just merrily keeps on going even though it’s no longer being supplied with any filament.
It also seems that sometimes the tube inside the Palette device comes loose off of where it’s attached near the outgoing drive. I’m not sure if this is related to the first issue, but I can’t imagine it’s a good thing.
After a bit of testing, it seems like the quality of the splices is super inconsistent. In a length of test material I had the Palette make for me, I can easily pull apart some splices with my fingers while other splices using the same material seem to be as strong as the filament itself.
Same problem after new settings:
Is this a good question?
