Another Palette 3 Pro freeze up ruined a 20 hour print. WHY?
I have yet to get a successful print out of anything longer than 3 hours. This time, my Palette Pro 3 screen showed 20 hours into the print, 60% done on the progress bar, and 0h 00m remaining at the bottom of the screen, with the red Pause button still lit up indicating it thinks it’s still running. The fans were going full blast but the screen was unresponsive, as well as the power button. This is the second time I’ve had to pull the power cable. My printer (Artillery Sidewinder X2) had homed all axes, and the nozzle and bed temperatures had turned off (luckily). So, something in the Palette told the printer either it was finished, or to stop the print, since it was homed and cooled down. My print was naturally ruined (for the 4th try but the first 3 failed due to other reasons.) Everything else looked normal. I had a full line of filament with several intact splices, and the extruder was not clogged, and there were no errors anywhere that I could see.
I know Mosaic is tired of hearing this, but for what I paid for this I could have bought two multi-color machines from competitors. Is there ANY discussion about why the Palette 3 is Freezing, Hanging, or Crashing (not sure what to call this)?
Is this a good question?
