Mosaic CANVAS Hub For The Palette 2 & 2 Pro

A vital part of Mosaic's multi-material ecosystem, the CANVAS Hub acts as a bridge that allows your hardware products to communicate with each other in real time. By using a Raspberry Pi Zero and customized version of Octoprint, models can be prepared in the CANVAS browser-based cloud software designed specifically for multi-material printing, and print files can be sent directly to your printer and started directly from the CANVAS interface.

Get Connected, Stay Connected

CANVAS Hub improves the 3D printing process by focusing on two main areas:

1. Enabling direct communication between your 3D printer and your Palette 2 / 2 Pro.
2. Connecting your Palette 2 / 2 Pro and 3D printer wirelessly to CANVAS and your computer.

Streamlined Palette 2 Experience

Simplified startup and increased reliability with the CANVAS Hub allows users to focus less
on tweaking settings and more on creating beautiful, multi-material 3D prints. And all with
reduced filament waste as Palette will always know exactly where in a print it is.

Mosaic CANVAS Hub

CANVAS Hub enables the CANVAS software platform to communicate with your 3D printer and your Palette 2. This means that—with CANVAS Hub—you won’t have to worry about managing files on different SD cards or connecting your printer to your computer with a USB cable.

With CANVAS Hub’s WiFi connectivity and its connection to both your Palette 2 and your 3D printer, you’ll be able to manage your printing workflow wirelessly through the CANVAS web interface and Mosaic’s customized version of OctoPrint.

More specifically, you can use CANVAS Hub to control aspects of your 3D printer and your Palette 2 from your computer: load and unload filament, jog your extruder, start a multi-material print, and access CANVAS Material Profiles from your Palette 2.

 

PALETTE CLEANSER

With the Palette 2, Mosaic has designed a system that ensures that the complex process of multi-filament printing works easily and smoothly, and that means the Palette 2 and your 3D printer make sure to check in with each other periodically throughout the print. This can sometimes lead to brief delays as each device catch up to one another.

The CANVAS Hub removes any such delays, as it maintains a constant communication between the two devices. Your printer will always know where the Palette 2 is in the print, and total print speeds will be noticeably faster.

It's a printing party, and you've got the Hub!

 

Improved Printing Thanks to Digital Pinging

CANVAS Hub also enables one of the most crucial features in Mosaic’s new product ecosystem: Digital Pinging.

When Palette 2 is used as an accessory (with no CANVAS Hub), it operates off of what we call pings. Each ping is a series of printer movements that Palette 2 can detect in the printer’s extrusion. Palette 2 detects these pings and uses them to deduce how far the printer has progressed through the G-Code file.

This system works well enough. However, extrusion inconsistencies, print head movement, and a number of other factors can cause missed pings. And missed pings can throw Palette 2’s calibration off, leading to incorrect color placement in a print.

By contrast, CANVAS Hub feeds G-Code to your printer and your Palette 2. It passes pings between the two so, instead of waiting for pauses (like in accessory mode), communication is instant. This digital pinging means that Palette 2 never misses a check-in.
