Overview

Soluble, Durable, Flexible, Colorful

Turbocharge your printer with Palette 2. Unlock your 3D printing potential.

Palette 2 combines four filaments and feeds them into your printer in real time, no modifications required.

  • Print impossible overhangs with water-soluble support.
  • Make heat- and water-resistant models in four colors of durable PETG.
  • Create functional, end-use products by combining PLA with a flexible TPU.
  • Improved hardware design helps to create consistent and reliable bonds between filament.
  • Color touchscreen includes built-in Gradient and Pattern modes.

How Does It Work?

Palette 2 takes up to four filaments and combines them into a single filament strand. This strand is then fed to your printer, enabling your single-extruder printer to create multi-filament prints!

  1. Drive: Palette 2’s all-metal drive systems, inspired by those on industrial FDM machines, accurately control filament to ensure the right lengths are driven from each input.
  2. Cut: A rotary cutter system slices filament to ensure a clean, low-resistance cut, time after time.
  3. Connect: Palette 2’s updated Splice Core connects filaments together end-to-end before passing them through a machined PTFE (Teflon) channel and splicing them together.
  4. Cool: The newly spliced filament is passed to our buffer area to cool and ensure that it keeps tight dimensions before being passed to your printer.
  5. Calibrate: There’s no need to attach our Scroll Wheel to your printer anymore, as it is now built inside of Palette 2, allowing for more precise calibration and a streamlined Palette experience.

Palette 2 Pro: High-Performance Features for Power-Users and Professionals

For high-demand printers and professional users, we offer the Palette 2 Pro.

Palette 2 Pro includes:

  • All aluminum Splice Core Pro allows for up to 20% faster splicing and cooling, improving the overall print time
  • Additional parts to ensure optimal performance and maintenance
  • Sleek all-black casing
  • Includes many spare parts and 2-year warranty

Compatibility

The Mosaic Palette 2 and Palette 2 Pro are designed for use with 1.75mm filament and is compatible with most 3D printers that use 1.75mm filament, including Dremel 3D printers. There is also a separate adapters available that will allow you to use the Palette 2 or Palette 2 Pro with certain printers designed for 2.85mm filament:


Power Up Your Multi-Material Printing Workflow with the CANVAS Hub

Simplify and enhance the entire printing process by wirelessly connecting your printer, Palette 2, and computer using CANVAS Hub (sold separately).

The CANVAS Hub is the keystone of Mosaic’s multi-material ecosystem. Think of it as the center of everything to do with multi-material printing, and the bridge that allows your hardware products to communicate with each other and come online.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Does Palette 2 work with 2.85mm or 3mm filament?

A: Sorry, no! Palette 2 only works with 1.75mm filament. However, there are adapters available that allow the Palette 2 and Palette 2 Pro to be used with the Ultimaker 2+ or Ultimaker 3, or with the Lulzbot TAZ 5, TAZ 6 or Mini.

Q: What materials does Palette 2 work with?

A: Palette 2 supports several combinations of materials. A full list can be found on the Palette 2 multi-material printing guide at http://mm3d.co/multi-material.

Q: How do Palette 2 and the printer know which color is which?

A: Each color/material is a separate model. If you’re printing in 4 colors/materials, you will need 4 different model files. You can find models at http://mm3d.co/stuff-to-print or learn how to split 1 STL into multiple models at http://mm3d.co/meshmixer. The model is sliced as a multi-body G-code file. The G-code file is processed in Mosaic Chroma (free, easy-to-use software) or CANVAS (our web-based slicer/customizer/modifier) to create a new files for the printer Palette 2 with instructions on when to switch between filaments.

Q: Any software requirements?

A: Mosaic CANVAS software (free at https://canvas3d.io) or Chroma software (free software that accepts G-code and tells Palette 2 how much of each filament is required) works on Windows (7, 8, 10 or higher, 32-bit and 64-bit), macOS (Mountain Lion/10.8 or newer), and Linux (x64, tested on Ubuntu 16.04).
