    Thanks for this great article Jonny.  

    Stunning Benchy at the end.  What printer was used to create this?

    Thanks, Neil! If I recall correctly, it was done on our Type A Series 1 Pro.

    Does the pinging still work correctly if you are using side transitions rather than a transition tower  ?

    Yes, pinging will still occur even when using side transitions. You should still see the ping signature occur in side transition where your extruder will pause, extrude, then pause again before continuing with the print.

    Why can't I find "Re-Calibrate Printer with Palette" in Chroma?

    I am in edit printer profile and have selected Palette tab but re-calibrate is nowhere to be found?

    Hi Tank6919, this option is only for Palette/Palette+. If you'd like to re-calibration your Palette 2, please follow the steps here: http://mm3d.co/calibration-troubleshooting

    Interesting article. Can pings be used to detect bad Z-layers values?
    I like to really squeeze my first layer, especially when using a textured plate. I notice my pings are way below 100% at the beginning of the print then increase and ultimately stabilise a little over 100%...

    Yes, your ping pattern suggests that your first layer is being squished, causing underextrusion and the low pings. Palette does eventually recover, but it may be best to re-level your bed to help avoid these low pings at the beginning of your prints.

    Thanks for this. I've readjusted my Z-height and pings are now much closer to 100% at the beginning of the print...
