If used with a dual-head printer, Palette/Palette+ will use one nozzle at a time, then leave the other nozzle unused. So, although Palette is compatible with dual extruder printers, it only uses one of the heads at a time.

We plan on adding support to allow the second head to print with another filament in the future. We expect that we will work on and release this feature in the near future, but there are a few slicing and software hurdles that need to be addressed.

Just to add a support to this enhancement, could you also look into the possibility of using two Palette devices one on each nozzle? Just imagine the possibilities with this and dual input/single hotend and dual input dual hotend setups.

I’d love to see it work somehow by using 2 pallets (one for each extruder) and have the slicer program work with 8 materials/colours using this process.

Thank you for the feedback Isaac, we're always on the hunt for innovative ways to improve Palette : )

of even batter, cascading palettes on one extruder, so 7 with 2, 10 with 3, 13 with 4, and so on with the limits being the ability to communicate with the printers motherboard. If some kind of layering in slicing can be achieved, allowing proper communication to all devices, there theoretically isnt a limit to how many materials at once could be used. also, with dual head extruders, you could use one hot hotend, and one colder hot end for different temperature ranges allowing for extremely different designs as well. this added to a belt hotbed converted cr10 s5 with the 45* Z would be AWESOME! sorry nerd gasim…
