Palette 2 & Palette 2 Pro
Palette 2 & Palette 2 Pro
One of the most common pieces of feedback Mosaic received regarding Palette+ is that it requires a lot of setup and tuning to get great results. So, with Palette 2, we’ve completely removed the initial calibration process and we’ve implemented learning algorithms into its firmware to enable improved print accuracy over time.
This simpler setup and ease of use also applies to the hardware and design of Palette 2. We’ve re-located the Scroll Wheel filament sensor and the buffer region to the inside of Palette 2, meaning you no longer need to place a sensor on the side of your printer. Overall, Palette 2 has a smaller footprint and its physical setup is significantly more flexible than that of its predecessor.
For quick setup, you can use the included stand to place Palette 2 on a surface beside your printer. For something more compact, you can use the included mounting plate to mount Palette 2 directly onto your 3D printer.
More Reliable Printing
Palette and Palette+ operate as accessories. This means there is no communication between them and the printer they operate alongside. While this works well and allows both products to be universally compatible, it can be challenging to tune and optimize settings to achieve a high level of reliability for long and challenging prints.
In order to give you the best possible results, Mosaic is introducing CANVAS Hub. CANVAS Hub ties Palette 2 to your 3D printer, allowing your machines to communicate with each other, and with our CANVAS multi-material software platform for printing via WiFi. This communication also means your Palette 2 stays in sync with your printer at all times.
CANVAS Hub has been developed with accessibility in mind, and we highly recommend it to any Palette 2 user looking to have the most reliable printing experience.

Now that thousands of Palettes are in the wild, Mosaic have been able to take three years’ worth of user feedback and incorporate it into the designs of Palette 2 and Palette 2 Pro. With fundamental upgrades to many key areas of the system, the ease of use and reliability of the Palette 2 line make it a substantial improvement upon its predecessors.
Mosaic’s new modular Splice Core uses our patent-pending solid-state splicing technology, which can heat ten times faster and use up to 30 times less energy than the hot tool in Palette+. The solid-state splicer not only leads to improved splicing reliability, but also allows for different types of filament to be more reliably used together in a single print.
Better Control & Simpler to Maintain
User interface and user experience were at the core of the Palette line’s redesign, so Mosaic made a number of changes to give you a more delightful experience.
Mosaic included a new, color touchscreen to allow users to interact with Palettes more easily. This screen gives you the ability to control all aspects of Palette 2 and monitor your print job as it progresses. You can even create gradient prints and activate several other print modes, right from the screen!
Palette 2’s flat, top-down design and use of transparent materials mean that you can see and easily access filament during 95% of its journey through the system. This, combined with the tool-less design, result in a system that is incredibly intuitive to use and maintain.
Palette 2 vs Palette 2 Pro
Palette 2 Pro has been optimized for professionals who tend to print with larger, faster 3D printers.
Palette 2 Pro features the all-metal, modular Splice Core Pro. Machined out of aircraft-grade aluminum, the Splice Core Pro was designed for ultimate durability and performance. Premium internal components with precisely tuned thermal characteristics allow the Splice Core Pro to heat up and cool down up to 20% faster than the Palette 2 Splice Core. The Splice Core Pro is only compatible with the Palette 2 Pro.
Generally, if your print bed is larger than 30cm (12”) in any dimension, plan to use Palette 2 for industrial purposes, or push very high printing speeds on your printer, we recommend that you upgrade to the Palette 2 Pro to prevent limiting your printing speeds.
Palette 2 Pro comes with an extended warranty of 12 months or 50,000 splices (whichever comes first), and a generous array of extra components to ensure minimized downtime. Palette 2 Pro also comes with an extra large teflon guide tube for use with larger printers.
