Product description: Palette 3 Pro - a system for combining felt
Palette 3 Pro is an advanced version of the filament mergingsystem, created by Mosaic. This product is designed for people whose3D printersare equipped with a single extruder and can only feed one thermoplastic thread at a time. Palette 3 allows you to easily make prints with more coloredfilaments. In the Pro version, there are up toeightdifferent printing materials. In addition to diversifying the color of the final 3D model, the system will also prove useful for creating soluble supports in 3D models with complex shapes.

Palette 3 Pro - how does it work?
The principle of operation of theMosaicproduct is based on the appropriate shortening of the downloaded material for printing. Palette simultaneously downloads all loadedfilaments, then, according to the guidelines entered by us in the project, selects the appropriate and trims it to the appropriate size. In the next step, it takes another thread of another filament and also cuts it to the appropriate length. The next stage of work consists in combining the two pieces. This process is constantly repeated. As a result, we get a new filament composed of several others. It is then fed into the extruder of the printer.
Rich colours with Palette 3 Pro
With the Palette 3 system, even less experienced 3D printers can create three-dimensional models with the most imaginative colours. The Pro version enables you to use up to eight different-coloured filameters without any interference with the design of your 3D printer. To enjoy a wide range of colours of finished 3D prints, it is no longer necessary to purchase specialist equipment with multiple extruders, or time-consuming painting of finished models.
Different types of filament in one printout
As with colour mixing, the Mosaic Palette 3 Pro is an invaluable tool for combining different types of filament. Complex 3D prints, where individual parts need to exhibit different properties, are made much easier with Palette 3 Pro. During the design phase, different types of filament can be mixed with each other (e.g. flexible with harder ones). The Mosaic system does the hardest part. The product is also an invaluable help when creating dissolvable supports. Among the compatible filaments, the manufacturer lists: PLA, PETG, TPU, ABS, PVA, HIPS with a Shore hardness of at least 95A.
Improved weave core 3 generation
The Palette 3 Pro version is a model, in which the manufacturer applied an upgraded system of combining pieces of previously cut filament yarns. Its operation is based on an upgraded strand core, which is characterised by great precision of operation. The component is up to 10% more efficient than the previous version, it also has an improved cooling system. It ensures reliable and accurate combining of filaments and then transporting them to the movement mechanism in the 3D printer. An additional advantage of the product is the possibility of long-term work, which is often required for complex 3D models. In the case of depletion of one of the installed filaments, Palette automatically uses the next one without interrupting printing.
Convenience of use
The Palette 3 Pro is equipped with WiFi connectivity. This enables you to connect the module quickly and reliably to your printer and computer. The Mosaic filament blending system also includes dedicated Canvas software, which enables advanced modifications to be made to 3D models in the cloud.
What has changed compared to Palette 2?
- Up to 35% faster filament merging
- Improved cooling system
- Larger, clearer display
- Redesigned material transport tubes to reduce the risk of material jamming
- Integrated Canvas Hub. Palette 3 Pro no longer requires the separate purchase of a component for easy connection to a computer. Control is via the Palette 3 Pro's built-in touch screen. The device is still OctoPrint compatible.
