how to heat nozzle during a pause

Recommended Posts



I have a UM3 and am printing two colors of PLA.


I am concerned that nozzle 2 may be clogged.  The build tried a prime blob and a skirt for #2 and nothing came out.  I have a few hours before the build calls for #2, so I thought I would pause the build and address the issue.   But, when I paused the build, the nozzle 2 temp was down to ~60° and falling.  Is it normal for the machine to cut power to the nozzles during a pause?  Is there a way to turn the heaters on while paused?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
