Palette 2S by Mosaic

$599.99

I received the pro version of this for review and am very impressed.  It is expensive, but I believe it to be far more useful than a multi nozzled printer.  Watch part 1 of my review of the pro here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6E_L3j4JTA

Print multiple filament colors and types with the Mosaic Palette 2S, an upgrade from the Mosaic Palette 2. The Palette 2S is a simple, reliable multi-material printing system, taking four strands of filament and combining them before feeding the color of your choice into your 3D printer. This means you can switch color at any point in your print for beautiful, complex, and surprising prints that will look like magic. Unlock your printer’s potential with the easy to use Mosaic Palette 2S.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Palette 2S takes up to four types of filament 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 2S’s all-metal drive systems accurately control filament flow to ensure the right lengths are driven from each input.
  2. Cut: A rotary cutter system slices filament to ensure a clean cut.
  3. Connect: Palette 2S’s updated Splice Core connects filament 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 to cool and ensure that it keeps tight dimensions before being passed to your printer.

Calibrate: The Scroll Wheel attached to the Palette 2S allows for more precise calibration and a streamlined Palette experience.
