    • It's amazing to see that i had the same problem and question. I usually avoid the Contact Z distance. Anyways, I got information from several places regarding any problem in 3d printing.
    • First of all, a lot of people in the "professional world" are using Ultimakers. And the Palette 2 is still not working with 2.85 filaments (and probably never will?)   The last few months I came across a new scenario for multi material printing. It is mixing PLA with PETG for supports. PLA and PETG don't bond to each other. So you can print your part with PLA and supports with PETG (or vice versa) and set the contact z distance to 0(!). It works very well. Supports are coming off easy and the interface layers look as good as if you were using soluble supports. Since you have to keep soluble filament in dry conditions it is much easier (and cheaper) to use PETG instead.    Setting up the Palette is very easy. Mosaic has some videos one can watch like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqbMw_M07GM (and the two follow up ones).   As for my experience. The combination Prusa MK3 + Palette 2 is probably one of the most used one in the community and works very reliable (of course there is no 100% guarantee but lets say 98,5% of the time 😉) . And I always use and recommend Prusas.    Also I would recommend using this post processing tool for PrusaSlicer 2.0: https://github.com/tomvandeneede/p2pp for an Prusa+Palette combination.    I would also still strongly recommend the already mentioned DIY canvas hub guide. There is already an Octoprint beta version out for the new Raspberry 4 so chances are the guide might work with the new Raspberry 4. But I haven't tested it.
    • Thank you, Dr Mike I'll look into that.
    • Flaviu,    Can you go into more detail with your Palette 2 experience? The concept looked great in theory when it came out, but at the time I heard it was still problematic. Are you finding success now?
    • If you are only interested in bone, the lower dose is probably fine. Make sure you get sequences with soft tissue reconstruction algorithm in addition to the standard bone algorithm. Edge enhancement with the bone algorithm causes speckling, which can make bone segmentation more difficult. See my blog article on selecting a good scan for 3D printing below for details. Look at the section on reconstruction kernel.
