0:47 - Creating a Project
0:55 - Adding a Printer
0:58 - Creating a new Printer Profile
1:23 - Printer Profile: Settings (e.g. bed dimensions)
1:45 - Printer Profile: Advanced Settings (e.g. print file format)
2:01 - Creating a Style Profile
2:30 - Style Profile settings: layer height, shell thickness, perimeters, print speeds
2:41 - Style Profile settings: extrusion, retraction
2:51 - Style Profile settings: infill

3:09 - Style Profile settings: transitions, transition tower, side transitions, transition length
3:20 - Style Profile settings: first layer height, speed, skirt/brim, raft
3:32 - Style Profile settings: supports
3:46 - Importing slicing settings from a different application to create a new Printer Profile and Style Profile
4:19 - Naming your Style Profile
4:28 - Add your Palette: Palette, Palette+, Palette 2, Palette 2 Pro
4:37 - Select Accessory Mode, or Connected Mode if you are using CANVAS Hub or OctoPrint
4:42 - Select your Style Profile
4:50 - Uploading STL/model files for slicing
5:13 - Uploading single-material models versus multi-material
→→→ Importing "multi-material models" will automatically group and align the models.
→→→ Grouping models allows you to move, scale, rotate, and duplicate them easily.
→→→ Importing multiple "single material models" will disperse them on the print bed.
5:28 - Grouping and aligning models using the "group and align" button
