I am attempting to use the End-of-Spool feature in Chroma on my Palette+. I used four spools, 4500mm, 4500mm, 6500mm and 2500mm. When I run this using the instructions provided (without printer), the Palette does not splice at these lengths but overshoots them considerably.
Looking at the filament used for the inputs (at least the first 3 as I could only check while it was running) it showed 5487mm, 5483mm, 7911mm for the inputs. Shouldn't the splices occur roughly at the values specified in Chroma?
The instructions do not specify, however I assume when I am running without a printer I leave the scroll wheel off? The instructions should probably be updated to state this (unless I missed that).
Since estimating remaining filament and measuring it is pretty hit and miss and doesn't let you get so close to using it all up, I was wondering if I could just use very large number for the length instead and use the change filament function on the menu to switch when it gets close to the end?
Obviously specifying actual lengths (assuming I can find a way to make the Palette+ honour them) allows unattended joining but for joining lots of short scraps and more than 4 of them just using a long length and change filament would seem to be a good technique.
