Do you have to use the Canvus Hub?

    Hi Jim! When using P2 with your printer in Accessory Modeyou would operate P2 first to produce filament until it's loaded into your extruder, and then start the print.

    You don't have to purchase CANVAS Hub to use Palette 2. CANVAS Hub would allow you to control your printer and start the print from your browser (using Octoprint).

    You can use CANVAS on your browser, or Simplify3D, Cura, Kisslicer, or Slic3r with Chroma.

    Please let me know if you have other questions!

    I would not recommend buying the Hub, simple put it does not work, many hours spent wasting time trying to get it to work only to turn round and replace it with a pi for much less.

    Take your $70USD and buy a Raspberry Pi 3+ and a small LCD screen, print a case, load octopi onto sd card and you will have a stable octopi platform with more than enough grunt to handle the requirements of 3d printing as well as having a native LCD screen to control it directly if you wish. You probably will have enough cash left over to grab a camera for time lapse.
