    I found the thread. I am a computer technician so I should be able to handle it. Hoping I'll hear from robo about it tomorrow. I don't expect them to replace it at this point. If they don't, I'll grab that screen from amazon and give it a go. Can't be any worse or more difficult than a laptop disassembly/reassembly.

    No, it is certainly easier than most laptops :)
    Just pay attention and it is not too hideous.

    Nope not hard, just a pain. Mind the screws, some are longer than others, don’t mix up where they go. You should be fine.

    Turns out there was a small particle between the screen and the frame that was causing the screen jump. Little swipe on all 4 sides of the screen with a business card appears to have solved the problem. I really didn't want to have to replace the screen.

    Happens alot more than one would think, and almost always "non visable" lol. Glad you got it working.

    So, update with the palette and Robo printers. One of the top people at Mosaic commented on a thread that TransBat and I are both participating in on their forum and he said the partner integration was intended to mean for future robo3d releases. What? Robo sold the palette+ on their site, but a newer palette doesn't work as advertised with a printer that's been on the market now for well over a year? Sorry I just don't buy this explantion. I think its a whole lot of major backpeddling after getting word from users (since they didn't test it themselves) that the unit doesn't connect properly.

    Yea, for it to realistically be something tested and "certified" I can imagine the New Palette would qualify unless they had been working with Robo from the get-go. Product certification requires a lot of testing and working with the hardware and I rather doubt Robo had access to early versions of the new Palette

    Probably more of a "this ought to work, let's market it" type of thing ;)

    Jonny Yeu from Mosaic just provided this update about 10 minutes ago:


    Hi everyone, I just wanted to provide you with an update on the situation. We've been able to completed a connected print on our Robo printer by making changes to our CANVAS Hub and Palette plugins. The Palette plugin will be updated later this week/early next week to V1.2.2 and will work with Robo printers. The CANVAS Hub plugin will require the user to make manual changes in the terminal command in order to have it communicate properly with the printer. We're currently waiting to hear from Robo as many of these changes can be bypassed if they are able to update the OctoPrint interface that they are currently using.

    Based on this information, we should have a solution in the next week or two for Robo users. I'll prepare a support document that will contain information on the adjustments that need to be made and will share this with you and other Robo users once available.

    We appreciate your patience and understanding with this situation.

    Jonny Yeu just did an update a few minutes ago. It appears they have updated the plugins for robo's octoprint and provided a little tutorial on end user changes to get the canvas and palette plugins to work.


    Hey everyone, I wanted to share that we're just released update for the CANVAS and Palette plugins, and have also provided instructions on how to make adjustments so that they work with Robo printers: http://mm3d.co/robo-plugin

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
