In this guide you will learn how to:

  • Access and create prints with Pattern Mode

Tutorial video coming soon, check back again later!

  1. Before utilizing custom print modes, ensure that your filament has been splice tuned. The Splice Tuning feature will help you find the ideal settings so your Palette 3 can create optimal splices. A guide on how to do this can be found here.
    • Before utilizing custom print modes, ensure that your filament has been splice tuned. The Splice Tuning feature will help you find the ideal settings so your Palette 3 can create optimal splices. A guide on how to do this can be found here.

    • Slice a single-body STL file in Canvas or a slicer of your choice that is compatible with Palette.

    • From the main screen, tap Print From > Custom Print > Pattern

  2. Choose the heat, compression and cool values for the material being used that were found during splice tuning.

  3. Tap Define Pattern > Add new segment Choose the length of filament you would like to use for each drive. The length that you select will be repeated throughout the print.
    • Tap Define Pattern > Add new segment

    • Choose the length of filament you would like to use for each drive. The length that you select will be repeated throughout the print.

    • We suggest adding a bit more length (2-4 cms) to the segment than the model's displayed length in your slicer. This ensures that there is enough filament to complete the print. Websites like http://gcode.ws can be used to find the length of your model.

    • Tap Next.

    • Palette will display the number of repetitions in the print.

    • Tap Next and follow the prompts to either Start with a Printer or Start Without a Printer.

    • If you choose to start without a printer, Palette is not connected to the printer via the outgoing tube, so it will continuously create filament.

    • Follow the prompts and begin your print!

    • Once Palette is finished making the initial splices with enough filament to come out of the outgoing tube, insert this filament into the printer's extruder.

    • Jog the filament until you see filament come out of the nozzle, and then start the G-Code file on the printer.
