Introduction

Run-out detection on Palette 3 will intercede in the event that filament reaches the end of a spool or falls out of its input.

This guide will teach you how to:

  • Enable filament run-out detection on Palette 3
  • Reload an input if run-out is detected
  • Change filament during a print

Please also see this guide on re-assigning inputs and how to set back-up drives.

  1. Go to Settings > Printing to turn on filament run-out detection.
    • Go to Settings > Printing to turn on filament run-out detection.

    • Start a print in either accessory or connected mode.

    • Filament detection will be enabled during printing, after the initial loading sequence is completed.

  2. If filament run-out is detected or the homing switch times out, Palette will pause. In connected mode, both Palette and the printer will pause. The nozzle on the printer will also cool. Palette's screen will display which input detected run out. The options are to cancel the print or load filament into the input.

    • Load filament: The input that ran out, or any back up drives assigned to that input can be reloaded.

    • Selecting an empty input will also set it as a back up drive for the primary input that ran out.

  3. Changing filament can be done while a print is in progress, and will retract the selected input so that a new filament can be loaded. This can be done to change colors for the print, or preemptively load a new spool before filament runs out. In connected mode, both Palette and the printer will pause. In accessory mode, the printer has to be paused manually. While a print is in progress, go to Tools > Change Filament

    • Multiple inputs can be selected and changed, but they can't be reassigned to a new input, or have new back-ups selected.

    • Palette will retract the selected inputs, please remove the filament completely and press Next.

    • Palette will then prompt which inputs will be reloaded. Insert the new filament and then press Done.
