Keeping bed headed between prints?

Recommended Posts

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.

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?
