    Hey Brian, the magnet is supposed to move freely towards and away from Palette+ at a distance of approximately 15 cm. The purpose of the magnet is to set off the hall sensor within Palette+, signaling Palette+ to create more filament. When creating filament, you'll notice that the magnet moves away from the unit, causing filament to build up a buffer within the Teflon tubing. As Palette+ uses this filament in the buffer zone, the magnet slowly moves back towards Palette+ to set off the hall sensor again, and restarts the whole cycle! You can read more about this process in our Calibration article: http://mm3d.co/ping-pong
