Will there be functionality for a belt printer

I have recently ordered the Ifactory one and CR-30 belt printers and was wondering if the pallet 2 pro will have functionality to utilize these printers?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hey @randy1727, thanks for your question. In general, Palette has 3 requirements for compatibility: accepts non-proprietary filament which is 1.75 mm in diameter, recognizes files sliced in S3D, Cura, KISSlicer, Slic3r/Prusa Slicer, or CANVAS (our slicer), and has open access to filament feed.

While these belt printers do accept non-proprietary filament 1.75 mm in diameter, and have open access to filament feed, we believe they come with their own slicer software, which is not compatible with Palette. Unfortunately, in order to use Palette, you would need to be able to use one of the above slicers with your printer.

It would be really nice if you added belt printers to your canvas slicer - I have 7 ifactory One and 10 CR-30 3d printmill. or perhaps support ideamaker slicer that has it included now

@shakaworld Thank you for the feedback - we will pass this onto the Canvas team for consideration!

Creality’s CR-30 uses a modified version of Cura called “CrealityBelt Cura”, So does this mean you will have support for this soon?

Hey Jordan, in general Palette will not be compatible with belt printers. One way you can use Palette with a belt printer though is via multi spool, random, or gradient mode (mm3d.co/multi-spool). These modes do not require a file for Palette, only GCode for the printer. However, these modes are not for calibrated prints.

@alina Why won't it be compatible?

@jdunn Hey Jordan, belt printers require a unique slicer, while Palette 2 is compatible only with Canvas, KISSlicer, PrusaSlicer, Cura, and S3D. Palette 3 will be compatible with Canvas and PrusaSlicer.
