I'm new to the multi color printing and I have some questions.
I have a Pruse i3 MK3S with the Respberry Pi Zero connected to the Einsy board.
I use Octoprint to upload my gcode files and a WebCam to observe the print.
With the Octolapse Plugin I also do Timelapses using the WebCam.
In some days I'll get the Palette 2 Pro.
1st Question: As far as I know (please correct me) I can install a Palette 2 Plugin in Octoprint to connect the Palette 2 with the Printer. So I don't need the Canvas Hub, right?
What are the advantages in connecting the Printer and the Palette2Pro?
When I use Slic3r Prusa Edition for slicing and open the gcode in Chroma, I get a new gcode with the purge-block and a file for the Palette2Pro.
2nd Question: Can I still upload the gcode in Octoprint and make Timelapses with Octolapse?
3rd Question: Is it possible to add a second object to Chroma (or Canvas) as a purge-object additionally to a smaller purge-block?
I just saw that you have to connect the Raspberry Pi to the Palette2Pro using USB.
My USB port is connected to the WebCam.
4th Question: Is it possible to use a USB Hub there???
5th Question: Palette2Pro is not able to connect via WiFi?
