How to disable build plate homing after print

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

Hello,

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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
