Can't skip cooldown after print finishes?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can't skip cooldown after print finishes?

Just got my Ultimaker S5 and I'm loving it.  That said, the 'cooldown' at the end takes forever, and it really sucks to endure when I'm just going to build something else right away (especially when I get my second glass bed I can chuck in there while the other one cools down).

 

There's a 'skip cooldown' feature that is greyed out however, but seems to be exactly what I'm looking for.  How do I get this to work?

 

In the meantime, is powercycling the machine to skip the cooldown OK, or does it cause some sort of problem?

 

Thanks!

    Hacking the firmware isn't for everyone.  I don't want to do it when there's the risk of bricking the machine, then there's the possibility of problems when upgrading...

    I put on some gloves, and take the hot plate out right away, and put the new glass in, speeds up the cooling down time 😉

    Normally you should give the user what a user wants. If there is a request  for skipping cooldown let us have it. 

    However you can skip cooldown from 60 degrees and down. But if you are above you cant. Makes no sense.

    Agreed.  Truly successful companies listen to their customers.
