Hi Everybody,


I have previously made use of the ability of the S5 Material Station to automatically switch filaments when one runs out. Only a handful of times so far, but it has worked. This time it didn't.


You know how, if the bed is raised but not doing anything, if it sits too long, it will just go ahead and lower itself? Well I let some filament run out and the machine initiated an End Of Filament switch over, and the process took so long that before it could start back up again, the bed lowered. And by "so long" I mean that after pausing it just sat there and kind of deliberated for a solid 10 minutes. Then when it finally finished switching, the machine somehow didn't know that the bed was lowered and started just printing in mid-air, on nothing.


It seems to do this a lot, where it just hangs in the middle of some process or other. Like aborting. Aborting sometimes takes like 10 to 15 minutes. Not because the process actually takes that long, but because it's just sitting there kinda thinking about it for a while first.
