Introduction

In this guide, you will learn how to:

  • Assemble the spoolholder included with Palette 3
  • Attach the tube clip guide to the printer's extruder and where to find custom tube clips
  • Palette and printer placement
  • Recommended tube lengths to select for the printer

  1. Insert two rods into the bases of the spool holder ends, press the ends together firmly. Place filament onto the remaining rods. Lower the rods onto the notches located on top of the spool holder ends.

    • Place filament onto the remaining rods. Lower the rods onto the notches located on top of the spool holder ends.

  2. Use the velcro provided and attach one piece to the printer’s extruder, near where the filament is inserted. Attach the other piece to the back of the tube clip provided. For Direct Drive printers, this tube clip will be positioned directly above the printhead or hot end.

    • For Direct Drive printers, this tube clip will be positioned directly above the printhead or hot end.

    • For Bowden-style Printers, this tube clip will be positioned on the Bowden extruder, before travelling through the Bowden PTFE to reach the hot end.

    • Position the circular section of the clip above where filament is inserted, and press the tube clip into place.

    • You can find custom tube clips here.

    • To remove the tube from the extruder clip, use a finger to hold back the collet to prevent it from gripping the tube, and gently pull on the tube.

  3. Placement options: Place Palette on its stand: Position the spoolholder directly below Palette.
    • Placement options:

    • Place Palette on its stand: Position the spoolholder directly below Palette.

    • Place Palette flat on the surface: Position the spoolholder on a surface with the same height as Palette.

    • Mount Palette: Align the spoolholder position to the filament inputs on Palette if possible

  4. The short tube is ideal for printers using a Bowden tube. The medium tube is ideal for most Palette and printer setups. The long tube can be used if Palette is mounted above the printer. Using a shorter tube when possible can allow for calibration adjustments to appear sooner while printing, due to the lesser distance the filament has to travel. The long tube mainly used for large printers where positioning requires the extra length.

    • If you are using your own tube, please enter the measurement as a custom length.

    • Insert the outgoing tube through the output, and make sure the tube sits flush to the brass coupling.

    • Before printing, please ensure that the tube is pushed all the way down to brass coupling.
