Although dual nozzle 3D printers have been coming to the market in a steady pace in recent years the materials and colors are often limited to two. Enter Mosaic who has doubled the possibilities with their Palette 2 Pro, not only allowing for multi-color, but also multi-material 3D printing. We received one to test with earlier this week and went to work immediately:
Of course we chose our logo to print make our first test print with and we are very happy with the first results.
We printed on the Stacker S4 with a 0.6mm nozzle and the print took 19.5 hours to complete. This print required 205 color changes (splices).
The base is PLA Semi-Matte Black (hey, we release Semi-Matte White just yesterday) and we matched our logo’s color with Color on Demand. For those extremely eager to print our logo as well, we use the following colors:
The Palette 2 Pro was loaned to us generously by the Mosaic team and does its job extremely well. Although not cheap it will definitely solve a lot of problems for users, especially ones with a single nozzle printer.

With Color on Demand we re-invented the way makers can choose colors. No longer you are bound to the colors that have been pre-selected by filament manufacturers anymore. Now you can order the color you actually need and want.
We have already matched over 100 RAL colors, which can easily be ordered online. Click here to see our collection. You can order as from one 750 grams spool! If we have not matched your favorite color, request it by using our online form. Starting from a 2kg spool we match the specific color you want, based on RAL, other well-known color references or a physical reference.
With Color on Demand you can say “yes” to that print job which needs a specific color or a look you have been waiting for. Stun your colleagues, family or other makers with your prints. You could already print one-of-a-kind designs, now you can also make them look unique!
Our Color on Demand experience room, still under construction, with all the RAL colors we matched… so far.
