Just ordered a Palette 2 for my delta and I'm waiting for it very patiently*.
One of my mild beefs with the Palette is the purge block - I don't like the amount of filament waste and would prefer to avoid it entirely. I'm working on an active purge bucket by adding a new stepper and carriage, then mounting that outside the frame the delta. My current working design involves parking the bucket a Z-max, then moving it down for purge, then moving it back up again to get it out of the way of the head. I've attached a mock-up showing the basic idea; the bucket as shown is not final. Could we get the ability to run custom gcode before and after a side purge? That would let me run this natively.
*This is a lie.
