Simplify and enhance the entire printing process by wirelessly connecting your printer, Palette 2S (sold separately), and computer using CANVAS Hub S.
Connected Printing with Palette
CANVAS Hub S serves four primary purposes:
With the new CANVAS Hub S, we upgraded the hardware inside from a Raspberry Pi Zero, to a Raspberry Pi Compute Module3+
Loaded with New Features That Enhance Your Experience
The seamless connection between Palette, your printer, and CANVAS unlock a variety of other features only possible when the systems are talking to each other.
One of these features is the ability to substantially increase multi-color print speed using the “slow printer during splicing” feature in CANVAS Hub S. This feature will coordinate the printing speed with Palette so that the printer can print at max speed most of the time and only slow down during the moments when Palette is splicing filament (the slowed part of the process). This usually leads to an increase of print speed that is between 20% - 100%.
If you plug a webcam into your CANVAS Hub S, the Pi 3+ Compute Module is now powerful enough to stream live video while it takes care of all the other printing functionality. This means that you can monitor your prints remotely giving you the freedom to leave your printers running with confidence as you work on other projects. You can even use a camera with CANVAS Hub S to record awesome Octolapses (learn how here).
