How to disable build plate homing after print


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to disable build plate homing after print


To avoid warping when printing ABS, I would like to keep the air temperature high and avoid any large air temperature fluctuation .  I already have an enclosed top and door for my UM2E+.  But the print still slightly warp after printing, so I suspect that the build plate homing creates a large temperature shock to the model since the air temperature at the bottom of the UM2E+ is usually lower just after printing.  The fact that it is an "extended" ultimaker makes it even worse.  I want to be able to let the model cool down slowly first before homing the built plate down to the bottom.  Is it possible?  Actually I do not know if the warping happens during printing or during the cooling after printing, but I would argue that a gradual air temperature change will always be better to the model than an abrupt temperature change.  I have another 3D printer and it does not home to the bottom after print.  It is harder to remove the print but it is better for the model.
