Novice 3D printer, went from knowing nothing to knowing a bit in only 6 months of 3D printing with my CR-10S. I had previously tried multi color printing by manually swapping out filament but it was too frustrating and took too long to get anywhere. I saw the ad for the Palette 2 and was hooked, and here I am.

    I just got an Error 43 where the palette 2 didn't continue the print.  Very frustrating after 10 hours of printing to look over at the printer and it's doing nothing in mid-air about 3 layers up.  ...

    Why limit us to only 4 colors?

    Here's my idea:  If you can fix the palette 2 to switch out filament in any given drive, we could load in a new color.  So if there were more than 4 color to print in the model, then the palette 2 ...

    I tried the calibration print and it failed and so, frustrated, I turned the palette 2 off for a while. I walked away and I came back some hours later and turned it on.  I decided to try another go...

    I've had this same problem and I actually had to change which cable I used to connect it to the PC.  I'm not sure why that helps but it does.  I wound up having to use the USB cable they provided w...

    OK, I did the new calibration print and got a nice keychain....all in one color.  It did 4 splices and NOT ONE was a splice to a new color.  I don't know what's going on.  It used to work so well.

    I feel like maybe I might be way behind the times.  I was at version 1.0.2 (I think) on the firmware and still trying to print the 3 color calibration print and now I see we're at 2.0.something and...

    I think I'm having this exact problem. It only just started recently (partially because I was unable to print for a while).  What's weird is that when printing the keychain calibration it came out ...

    Canvas switches colors at the wrong time

    I don't know what happened.  I had a successful first print with the thing...then had some issues that were tied to a faulty screw that held the splice core in place, and so I get a replacement scr...

    I can show splice pictures... I had two rolls of old filament but I had run it through the food dehydrator to remove extra moisture so print quality was still good on these.  At the same time, I ju...

    I'm using a CR-10S and I don't have any pictures to share because it's really nothing to look at (and plus I trashed it).  It printed about 4 or 5 layers and for some reason seemed to put way more ...
