Introduction

Once you've completed the calibration keychain, you're ready to start printing! Follow this guide for instructions on how to print with Palette. Before starting a print, please ensure that the following has been completed:

  • Your printer's extruder is pre-heated
  • Palette is positioned so that the filament path leads easily to your printer's extruder
  • Palette inputs and outputs are clear of filament

While you're welcome to choose any multi-color model, we recommend trying out this Multi-Color Ear Bud Case! It's a simple and useful print with four different colors.

Video Overview

  1. Turn on Palette 2 and select Start Print. On the top left corner of the screen, you can select to load a file from Palette's SD card (MAF file). If you're in Connected Mode, send your MCF file to the Hub. From the Hub page, preheat your extruder and select Print on the desired file. Follow the on-screen instructions to load filament into Palette 2's inputs.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to load filament into Palette 2's inputs.

  2. Palette 2 will begin to create filament, and you will see it pass through the output and through the Teflon tubing. Palette will create enough filament so that an additional 6-8 cm (2-3 inches) will stick out from the tubing. You can then feed this filament into your printer's extruder.

    • Using your printer's controls, manually extrude filament through the nozzle and stop loading as close to 0 mm as possible. For some printers with auto-load, you can time when to cancel the auto-load, while most printers have a Move Extruder operation. Once you've finished loading, tap Next on the screen.

    • If you're in connected mode, you can control the extruder in the Control tab.

    • Start the GCode file from your printer's screen/controls. Once you also indicate that the print has started on Palette's screen by pressing Finished, you will see a status screen displaying the time progress, splices completed, and total length of filament for the print.

    • If you're in connected mode, you will not need to start GCode file on your printer.

    • While your print is in progress, on the status screen press the Stop button. Confirm you would like to stop the print.

    • Unload filament from your printer and from Palette 2 by selecting Controls > Clear Output on Palette's home screen.
