    Is this limited to 4 spools/pieces? When one runs out it doesn't seem to fully unload it, nor do I see a way to reload a drive in the middle of a print. I'd like to be able to reuse 1-2m lengths of filament waste from failed prints and bowden tube leftovers, but I'd need to use more than 4 pieces for a print of any size.

    If this is the case, how can I create a feature request?

    I am waiting on my Palette 2, so I can't speak from experience.  Maybe when the print ends, you just feed the newly created line back in one slot and add to it from the other three slots?

    Agreed with Donovan.  I have a lot of 1m lengths of filament from the Bowden tube leftovers that I can't re-use in my immediate next print because all the spools slots are taken for the different colors.  It would be great if they can add a feature where it can splice the leftover filaments without having to run a print.

    Can Mosaic please respond here? I don't want to switch to a new color. I want to continue by refilling the missing color. Can this be done?

    Sorry for a delay in our response! You would need to check your Runout Detection settings on Palette to ensure that you've set it up as "Splice to next drive". This will cause Multi-Spool mode to continue until all drives are empty or you manually cancel the print. To answer the other questions in this thread, feature requests can be sent to support@mosaicmfg.com. Also, you can select to use this mode with or without a printer.
