    how does the palette know that i want for example brown in drive 1(body), black in drive 2(pupil), white in drive 3(eyes) and green in drive 4(shorts). Must i choose in s3d process 1 for the brown body, process 2 for the black pupil, process 3 for white eye and process 4 for green shorts? hope you understand what i mean?!

    Hey Marc, Palette will follow the order that you assign within S3D, so ordering them in the way that you've described is correct.

    Johnny, when I set up my process settings including the ones noted in the video and then upload the print into Canvas, is the g-code that is created when I saved the simplify3d to the stl file used by Canvas? So for example, I should not have to tell Canvas to use a skirt as I set this to do so in simplify3d.

    Hey Ken, since you're using S3D, you would need to process your GCode with Chroma (http://mm3d.co/chroma). Chroma will only add transitioning and calibration information to the GCode, so if you have skirts or other settings set in S3D, these would be unchanged.

    If you're transferring an FFF profile into CANVAS, CANVAS will automatically transfer similar settings onto your printer profile. If you have skirts set in your S3D FFF profile, this will transfer to your CANVAS printer profile.
