Is it possible to print single color but using the Palette?

I know my question may sound odd, but I find that having the Palette connected to my printer I do not need to swap filaments. Is it possible to use the Palette for single color printing?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I just load it up into multi-spool mode and put rolls of the same filament into two or more inputs.

There may be a better way.

Yes, that is what I do right now, but it defeats the main reason of using the Palette as a palette of filaments :P

Absolutely yes is the answer. The Palette can auto change between 4 feeds when filament runs out. This feature allows you to print huge one-color prints of 4 kg or more. It also allows you to use left over spools with small amounts of filament so that you can fully utilize them by stringing them together. You can use the same color of spools or different colors if a solid color is not important for the model being printed.

Thanks, however, my question was regarding Canvas. When you load a single color item onto a Canvas project, it bypasses Palette. What I am looking for is using Canvas and select the single color for the print and have Palette automatically use that color.

Hey @vorchak, if the print is single colour, CANVAS will not generate a file for Palette. However, as mentioned, currently the best way to print single colour prints with Palette is in Multi Spool Mode.
