Getting ready for MRRF 2018

Disclaimer- hey, it uses all 3D electronics and firmware, that has to count right?

A custom 3D printer with a 490mm X 490mm by 550mm build area (compared to say an N2 Plus with 305x305x600).
Paired with the Mosaic Palette + to allow extruding multiple colors or filament types from a single nozzle.
All while using the electronics straight out of an N1 printer.

Does the Mosaic Palette work with dissolvable filaments?

Also if one is only going to print in two filaments, which is better; independent dual extruders or is Mosaic?

You won't be able to use dissimilar materials with a splicer - only different colors of the same materials (I assume - I don't have one).

I'm assuming PLA prints with dissolvable PLA, and both having similar melting temperatures.
I'm just curious to the accuracy of filament slicers and any contaminations. Especially when it's traveling such a great distance before it enters the direct drive.

Yes, it works with soluble filament. I have E3D scaffold handy. I can run a test print just to show you.

Hmm, we're thinking about getting a Mosaic. Our lineup currently is a N2+ as main printer and three CR10S for rapid prototype/study modeling. Thinking about getting another N2+ or N2 to be more efficient with our main model production (we're an architecture firm). Single extruder on N2+ is great but dual extruder is finicky especially with contamination in large complex prints (a lot of flat walls & floors, thin tall columns, angles, overhangs galore).

Just want to know how compatible the Mosaic are with N2 printers. A lot of 'hacking' or is it plug and play?

From a how much hacking is required- none other than ensuring you use a guide tube mount and mount the encoder.
The palette is completely external to the printer.

If you want to know more on the N2/N2 Plus users and the Palette- the facebook group there are a few users with that combo up and 100% operational. https://www.facebook.com/groups/mosaic.users/

I have a Palette+ with my N2. I am no where near as good at printing as JetGuy is ... but I've had mild success with it. I did have a little bleed in a print last night - but that could have been my fault with loading the material improperly. All in all, i love it - i just dont think it's perfect yet ... at least not for me.

The gator logo was modeled by my son, and it uses the palette for the color swaps without having to manually load and unload filament during the print.

The stack of "waste" material next to that robot is pretty amazing. Do you think that you put about 1/2 of your filament into that tower?

Printed on the experimental but shown for scale jammed inside my N2+ so you can see how much bigger it is than the build area of the current series of Raise 3D printers. Printed in 8 hours and 41 minutes and used 118 meters of filament. Printed at 0.4mm layer height using a 0.8mm nozzle.

Maybe not half, but yes, a good percentage. I know the new version of Chroma has settings to decrease that tower (and speed the print) by trying to use transitions as Infill rather than on a purge tower. It was my 2nd print after calibrating the Palette+, so I was ok wasting some to get the right result and ensure I was on the right track

Outstanding :) I dont need something that big. I JUST WANT SOMETHING THAT BIG :)
