Keeping bed headed between prints?

Posted · Keeping bed headed between prints?

I have to do multiple small prints to test fitment. As of now, just as soon as the bed cools down, I am starting another print and having to wait to heat the bed back up again.

Is there a way to just keep the bed on between prints vs. it shutting down automatically?

TIA

    Nope. The bed is forced to cool down at the end of a print.

    You can, with the 3.6 firmware in combination with the Cura 2.5 beta, pre-heat the bed from Cura. So you could initiate a pre-heat as soon as your print finishes.

    Change then gcode at the end to no turn off the bed.

    I believe it is M140

    At the end of the gcode file.

    Removing that will tell the bed to stay on.

    Ill have to look at mines and make sure its that line.

    Thank you both. The Gcode edit will be best as I have to already make a few other adjustments. I am getting tired of moving the USB drive back and forth. I need to figure out a way to edit the gcode file and send the post sliced and edited gcode file to the UM3 via wifi (if even possible). Maybe a plugin?

    Cura v2.5 (Beta) has the new feature to read a gcode file, and then you can send it to your printer via WiFi.

    You can also send a gcode file from the um3 mobile app.
