    We need lego tops on the towers. Turns trash into toys.

    Has the interface changed since this was posted? I do not see all of these options under transitions in the profile editing window

    Never mind I missed the fact that I had to enable advanced settings

    I agree with Jason... it would be great if the transition tower would be a functional part or something like that.

    What do you do with the filament in the tube (from the palette to the hot-end) at the end of the print?  I think I'm supposed to remove it before the start of the next print? I feel like it's such a waste as it's almost a meter long of filament.  Can I re-use it?  If so, how?

    Hi Tim, you would need to remove this piece before the beginning of the next print. You could re-use this using our Multi-Spool mode to splice these loose pieces of filament together (http://mm3d.co/multi-spool)

    Thanks for the quick response, Jonny.  Is there a setting where I can just jog the Palette to splice the spools/filaments together without running a print?
