Comment more than a question

Bought a Palette Pro 3 thinking that printing in 8 different colors on a single nozzle printer would be better than my Palette 2 that printed 4. I was wrong! I have wasted a lot of time just trying to print a 2 color 16-hour model. Yes, it printed the 2-color calibration keychain just fine, in fact great, but I cannot get past about 11-1/2 hours without my print failing. I have attempted this 3 times now and it has failed all 3 times. Seems to splice just great and then all of a sudden it does not and then the printer advances the Z axis to be higher above the print and continues without extruding anything. Not happy for the amount of money spent. I have also a lot of time invested in getting everything all set up. Not only is it wasting my time it has wasted a lot of filament between the actual print and the transition tower. Others have had issues and I think they still need to develop it to do better.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi @makerjeffs, I’m very sorry to hear you experienced this issue with printing.

  • Are you familiar with splice tuning? You can try improving your splice settings to create a stronger splice for the print. Most PLA can print with settings [1,1,1], [2,0,2], or [2,1,2]. Once you have your splice tuning settings, these can be saved in the Canvas material profiles.
  • Is the z-movement you are seeing the result of air printing after some time, or is it a very large movement that happens at a certain point?
