The Palette 2 is a clever add-on for FDM multi-material 3D printing. It is a filament mixer that enables creating parts in up to four different colors saving the costs. It works like a conventional reel of filament. You’ll only have to connect Palette 2 to your single extruder machine and feed it with the filaments you prefer. It will then slice and combine them to generate a new multi-color and multi-material consumable. It comes with some smart features for filament control. It is compatible with most of the common professional 3D printers. It is widely used by designers, makers, engineers, and students to expand their printing capabilities and enrich their designs.
Companies like Render Labs and e-Nable France have been using it to make their 3D printed, usable parts more unique and characteristic. Scroll down to find out more.
Just have a look at these two models. They show the difference between a heart printed without the use of the Palette 2 and the same object printed through Palette 2. Same printer, different results.
This 3D printed element highlights the capability of this multi-material add-on. Notice how versatile and accurate it is.
Palette 2 is an Arduino-based tool compatible with the most popular FDM 3D printers available on the market. It allows producing parts with different materials and colors with ease. It features filament run-out detection. It is also able to estimate the exact quantity of filament required for each printing section enabling continuous printing. Its clear case is simple to disassemble for easy maintenance. It lets you see where each filament is placed in case of jams.
Palette 2 prints with PLA, ABS, PETG, Flexible, Soluble and other materials.
The Palette 2 prints with all kinds of 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The device comes with a 3.5-inch color touchscreen, which lets you customize your design directly onboard without the need of a computer.
Palette 2 can be easily connected to your printer via a USB cable. It also supports SD card connectivity.
The add-on comes with a self-developed multi-material slicing engine, CANVAS. It is a free, browser-based program that works with a variety of 3D printers. This useful upgrade enables printing over Wi-Fi. It includes direct painting and colorization features. The device is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux.
