    MULTI-MATERIAL MANAGEMENT & AUTOMATED WORKFLOW EXPLAINED

    As mentioned above, using Mosaic Materials and Material Pods with Element HT allows you to automate your workflow.

    Each Material Pod contains a motor which feeds filament from the Pod to Palette X, and onwards to the print head. Unlike our standalone Palette device, Palette X does not splice the materials. The reason for this is that when using, for example, combinations of high temperature with support materials, splicing becomes less reliable. Element, along with Palette X, has full control over material management and therefore does not require splicing. This promotes higher quality prints while also resulting in less material waste.

    Element is also cloud connected to CANVAS. This means creating, editing, organizing and slicing your multi-material models and sending them to the printer is extremely easy. What could once take up to an hour or more becomes a process reduced to a matter of minutes.

    FAQs and More Information about Element/HT

    How does it work?

    1. Choose: Element uses a modular direct-drive toolhead, capable of 350°C material prints, which can be removed in seconds. Choose up to 8 materials/colors per print with a single toolhead. Element HT broadens your selection to include engineering grade materials with a hot-end capable of 500°C.
    2. Slice: Create prints that are up to 14” 3 and use CANVAS to easily paint or assign up to 8 materials/colors per print. Upload files wirelessly and control your printer from anywhere where an internet connection is available using a web browser to access canvas3d.io. Spend less time configuring settings by using pre-made print profiles tuned for Mosaic materials.
    3. Load: Start your print and Mosaic Material Pods work directly with Palette X to seamlessly automate the filament loading process. It is worth noting that this process is only automated when using Mosaic Materials.*
    4. Print: Watch your print complete using CoreXY kinematics, Trinamic stepper drivers and rapid travel speeds on HIWIN linear rails. Transition quickly between materials without losing build space with Element’s short material path coupled with our transition densifier system, which deposits transition material safely into a removable container. While Element works, use the touchscreen UI to check printer operation at any time directly from the printer.
    5. Monitor: Element’s built in webcam lets you check on your print remotely through CANVAS to make sure the process is running smoothly. Mosaic Materials contain RFID technology that enables automated failure and filament run-out detection. You will be notified by the LED status indicator and on the touchscreen UI on the front of Element if the printer or print requires an operator’s attention.
    6. Completion & Removal: Mosaic’s build plates are magnetically held in place so they are easy to remove from Element. They are also flexible which makes removing the print from the plate a painless process. Upon placing the plate back into Element to start your next print, it will automatically level to achieve consistent first layers.

    FAQ

    Q: Can I purchase an Element (HT) and install it in an Array if I decide to purchase one in the future?

    A: Unfortunately due to the construction and UI of the standalone Element/HT printer, the user is not able to insert a standalone printer for use inside the Array. The main issues that stop this from happening are the filament pods on the side of the printer (Standalone) vs the back (Array), the Industrial Design of the Casing, as well as the Element Screen, and different door designs for the standalone Element and the Element in Array.

     

    Q: Can you use 3rd party materials with Element (HT)?

    A: Mosaic Material Pods are not compatible with 3rd party materials. Material pods and Mosaic materials are required to run multi-color and multi-material prints for Element and Element HT; however, side-loading 3rd party filament can be used with single material prints and with automated runout detection/correction. 


    Q: What is the nozzle type on the Element (HT)?

    A: Hardened steel nozzle.


    Q: Is the Extruder all metal? and if so is it on both the Element and Element HT? 

    A: Both the Element and the Element HT extruders are all metal with hardened steel nozzles and components for reliable printing of abrasive materials (including carbon fiber Nylon). The Element hot end will go up to 350°C while the Element HT hot end will go up to 500°C, in conjunction with a heated chamber of up to 80°C which allows for printing high performance materials such as Ultem 9085 and PEEK. Additionally, this heated chamber helps increase the print quality and strength of lower temp materials, such as Nylons and ABS.


    Q: What is the Firmware/Software for the Element? 

    A: Firmware: Marlin Based Software: Canvas3d.io


    Q: Is the Extruder all metal? and if so is it on both the Element and Element HT? 

    A: Both the Element and Element HT extruders are all metal with hardened steel nozzles and components for reliable printing of abrasive materials (including carbon fiber Nylon). The Element hot end will go up to 350°C while the Element HT hot end will go up to 500°C in conjunction with a heated chamber of up to 80°C which allows for printing high performance materials such as Ultem 9085 and PEEK. Additionally, this heated chamber helps increase the print quality and strength of lower temp materials, such as Nylons and ABS. 


    Q: How does the Element connection work?

    A: The Element to computer connection is being done through CANVAS. Element can connect over ethernet or wifi, but it does need to be online through the internet, it does not connect directly to your computer. Element is connected to Canvas in the same way your computer is - if your computer can access Canvas your Element will be able to as well. There are offline workflows available as well.


    Q: Will there be an exhaust system on Element?

    A: Element will have a combined HEPA and Carbon filter that can be easily replaced (every 6-12 months based on usage).


    Q: What is included in the warranty and is there a warranty document?

    A: Warranty covers factory defects. Mosaic will ship our replacement parts for user serviceable parts, and will either have the product returned, or send a representative to fix a warranty claim. (Return vs. visit will depend on cost.)


    Q: What is, if any, the return or exchange policy for Element?

    A: Products can be traded in for credit towards another Mosaic product. There are no returns available for Element (HT). For products outside of warranty coverage, our support team will be available to help but the cost of replacement parts will need to be covered by the customer.
