WiFi Connectivity: No more SD cards or USB cables.
Connected Experience: Load and unload filament, jog your extruder, start a multi-material print, and access CANVAS Material Profiles directly from your computer, .
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.
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
No longer worry about managing files on different SD cards or connecting your printer to your computer with a USB cable.
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.
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.
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.
