CANVAS Hub improves your 3D printing process by focusing on two main areas:
- Enabling communication between your 3D printer and your Palette 2, and
- Connecting your Palette 2 and 3D printer to CANVAS and your computer.
Modernize your 3D Printing Setup
CANVAS Hub is based on a Raspberry Pi Zero and interacts with our customized version of OctoPrint, as well as Mosaic’s CANVAS multi-material software platform (learn more here).
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.
Creating a Connected Palette 2 Experience
By allowing your 3D printer and Palette 2 to communicate, CANVAS Hub provides a Connected Experience that ultimately simplifies your startup process and increases the reliability of your setup.
