Palette™ needs to make sure that the right filament shows up at your printer's nozzle at the right time. But 3D printing is not a perfect science -- if a printer says it will use 10 meters of filament, it might actually use 9.7 meters of filament. Over time, small errors can add up and make the wrong filament show up at the wrong time.
That's where calibration comes into play. Calibration allows Palette to understand how much filament a 3D printer is really using so that Palette can adjust how much filament to produce. This is especially important at the start of a print before Palette's closed-loop feedback systems take over.
