Palette+

Palette+ 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!

How It Works

Palette+

  1. Drive: Palette+’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+’s patent-pending splicing system connects filaments together end-to-end before passing them through a machined PTFE (Teflon) channel and splicing them together.
  4. Cool: Combining both active and passive cooling systems, your newly spliced filament is re-hardened to ensure it keeps tight dimensions before being passed to your printer.
  5. Calibrate: Our patent-pending synchronization systems continually monitor and adjust for filament usage, allowing Palette+ to modify filament lengths to ensure perfect calibration over thousands of feet.

Compatibility

Palette+ is compatible with the following printers, and many more!

Machine isn’t on the list? Palette+ works with all 1.75mm printers that operate on .gcode, .x3g, .g, .or hvs; allow third-party filament; and give you access to the filament feed.
