Digital Calibration: Eliminate one of the major complaints of Palette users: incorrect colour placement.  Only the Hub enables instant communication with the printer, immensely improving calibration reliability.

 

This product is an accessory of the Palette 2 and Palette 2 Pro.

 



THE KEYSTONE OF MOSAIC'S ECOSYSTEM

Allows Palette 2 to communicate digitally with your printer and your computer. This communication leads to better calibration, more reliable printing, and a wireless link to the CANVAS platform

WIFI CONNECTIVITY

No longer worry about managing files on different SD cards or connecting your printer to your computer with a USB cable.

CONNECTED EXPERIENCE

Directly from your computer, load and unload filament, jog your extruder, start a multi-material print, and access CANVAS Material Profiles from your Palette 2.

 

DIGITAL CALIBRATION

Eliminate one of the major complaints of Palette users: incorrect colour placement.  Mosaic introduces Digital Pinging.  While major advancements have been made with the Palette 2, only the Hub enables instant communication with the printer, immensely improving calibration reliability.

WHAT IS DIGITAL PINGING?

When Palette 2 is used as an accessory (with no CANVAS Hub), it operates off of what are called pings. Each ping is a series of printer movements that Palette 2 can detect in the printer’s extrusion. Palette 2 detects these pings and uses them to deduce how far the printer has progressed through the G-Code file.

This system works well enough. However, extrusion inconsistencies, print head movement, and a number of other factors can cause missed pings. And missed pings can throw Palette 2’s calibration off, leading to incorrect color placement in a print.

By contrast, CANVAS Hub feeds G-Code to your printer and your Palette 2. It passes pings between the two so, instead of waiting for pauses (like in accessory mode), communication is instant. This digital pinging means that Palette 2 never misses a check-in.

The ability to operate off a single print file and digital pinging both ensure that Palette 2 always receives the information it needs to stay calibrated when working in conjunction with CANVAS Hub.

Calibration and user experience are two of the most important contributors to an enjoyable and painless Palette 2 experience. CANVAS Hub significantly improves upon both of these areas, enabling you to get the most out of your printer setup.

Hi Pierre, We offered to help get the Hub working for you, but you were set on using a Pi3B, which is only suitable for advanced users such as yourself. Here at RepRap we use the Hub and have had no problems since Day 1, and many of our customers have used it with no complaints either. While is is less powerful than the Pi3B, Mosaic determined that it was best to use the Pi Zero to save customers money. We do appreciate your feedback, and we hope you leave a review on the Palette 2 as well because we know you have quite enjoyed using it! :) Zach
