Replacing Prusa MMU2S with Palette 3

I 'm still waiting for my Palette 3 on the very slow boat from China, but I'm trying to prepare as best I can for the day when it arrives.

I currently have a MMU2S attached to my Prusa Mk3S+ and the PTFE tube connecting the MMU2S to the extruder has a festo plug at both ends (I assume this is standard).

I was wondering whether an alternative solution to an answer already given some time ago in the forum would be to put a festo plug onto the end of the tube from the Palette and directly screw that onto the existing festo socket on the extruder? If not, why not?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Chris,

That’s a great question, the printer end of the tube should be ok, as long as the fitting accepts 4mm PTFE tubes although sometimes the fittings are a bit tight around the filament and might add more resistance for the printer pulling the filament in.

On the Palette end, you may be able to DIY a solution although this isn’t recommended because the tube connects to Palette with the brass piece near the scroll wheel. Without a tube in that area, it will likely jam before leaving the Palette.

Is there any particular reason why you wanted to use festo fittings instead?

Was this answer helpful?

Thanks for the reply Fatima.

I was only considering a festo plug on the printer end. There's already a fitting to accept it on the print head, so if I can put a plug onto the printer end of the tube I don't need to change anything on the printer.

MMU2S users already have the festo fitting on the print head as the standard method of attaching the tube so I think this might be a fairly common question.
