    At this time, no, but we plan to allow this in the future.

    This has been added to the P2, is there direction on this? What does it do and how can it be used to tweak the print?

    Hey bill, you're now able to change the LO and HM on your Palette's screen using the most recent firmware (V5.0.4). You can do this by going to Settings > Preferences > Printer Profile and you'll be able to edit these values after selecting the desired profile.

    Hi, thanks for that, I did find that setting which led to my first post.  I wanted to know if there is documentation somewhere that says "what" it does. this is all I've found after searching here and being brought back to this post every time.

    "

    Historical Modifier "HM"

    A percentage of drift from pings/pongs and saved calibration data from successful prints."

    ok, so what does this mean and how does changing this setting affect the print?

     

    thanks again

    I'd like to know this too. I just installed a new extruder BMG on my Prusa. I used a jig that uses a digital caliper to meausre in real time how much filament is fed into the extruder when calibrating E steps and I've run that 5 times and took the average and set my E-steps. However, when printing a Palette job,  my ping shows 108%. Should I take that 108% and set my HM to the same? I just want to minimize all the test prints and stuff.

    Sorry for the delay in my response! I'm not sure how I missed this thread. The HM adjusts the lengths of filament based on the extrusion of your printer. For a printer with 100% HM, a 10 mm length would cause Palette to create 10 mm. If the HM is 108%, it means that your printer is using 8% more filament than expected and will adjust this 10 mm to 10.8mm to account for the difference. 

    If you are getting consistent pings of 108%, you would multiple your HM to 1.08 to try and adjust the value so that pings are closer to 100%.
