Minor Versionm

Introduction

This issue arises when filament gets jammed in the merger portion of your Palette/Palette+, which will cause your drives to skip and will not feed filament through to the cutter or splicing portions of Palette. This usually happens if your filament is brittle and breaks off while it is being pushed through Palette, or if a short piece of filament is fed into Palette (such as at the end of a spool).

  1. Remove the top lid of your Palette+ by removing the top two screws on each side of your unit. Next, detach the screen by removing the 4 screws using the same 2.0 mm hex key. Once the screws are removed the screen is still connected to Palette+, so carefully place this piece to the side and you'll have a clear path to the merger. Next, remove the one screw which attaches the merger to the cutter. Once the screws are removed the screen is still connected to Palette+, so carefully place this piece to the side and you'll have a clear path to the merger. Next, remove the one screw which attaches the merger to the cutter.

  4. Even once the screws are removed the screen is still connected, so carefully place this piece to the side and you'll have a clear path to the merger. Carefully shift the drives to the side so that you can access the two screws which attaches the merger to the cutter. Be sure to hold the acrylic pieces together when removing these two screws. If they slip or are separated, refer to this support article.
