Palette+ – Multicolour and now Multimaterial printing
We are now UK/IRE distributors to Mosaic Manufacturing and can offer the Mosaic Palette+ at a good price!
Finally you can use our PETG and PLA with Enabler in one print on a single nozzle machine. Read the description below for more info.

…is like the original Palette but BETTER! The box of tricks takes up to 4 filaments and connects them automatically into a single strand in the sequence of your choosing.
As with many cool dubifurkins, the original idea was floated on Kickstater and managed to hit its goals. The expectation for it was high and from our own experience and that of our reviewer Simone Fontana (aka @fntsmn) it does live up to the hype.
With Palette+ you can now take full advantage of our extensive range of functional as well as cosmetic filaments

How does it work?
- Drive: Palette’s all-metal drive systems, inspired by those on industrial FDM machines, accurately controls the feeding of filament to ensure the right lengths are driven from each input.
- Cut: A rotary cutter system slices filament to ensure a clean, low-resistance cut…don’t try sticking you finger in here!
- Connect: Palette’s patent-pending splicing system connects filaments together end-to-end before passing them through a machined Teflon channel and splicing them together.
- 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.
- Calibrate: In the background, the brains continually monitor and adjust the feed for filament usage, allowing Palette to modify filament lengths to ensure perfect calibration over thousands of prints.
So what's new??
For starters, the firmware has been updated to allow higher temperature materials to be used. This has allowed PETG to be used. The second and more important update is the splicing system
Can I use it on my printer?
Chances are yes! That is if you are using a printer that accepts GCode. Users of Cura or Simplify3D should thus be able to be able to couple the Palette with their single extruder machine. For sure, we know that the following machines in our range are compatible and as time progresses we will keep updating.
