yes i have the material station, which is another can of worms as almost 90% of my filaments dont actually fit in the thing so i have them outside and looped in and the continuous printing from when one runs out and changes over simply doesnt work, the new filament feed never makes it to the head.
If it wasnt for the fact it makes the printer look impressive id remove it, it was a total misfire sadly.
But im kinda over the above and moved on to some of the other horrendous things that really taint an excellent printer, one of the worst being what is discussed in the thread, its the slowest thing in the world.
Say i get a probe failure, which i do maybe 25/50% of the time due to oozing getting left from the secondary core when it probes the first spot, it then takes 30 or 40 minutes to cool down before i can attempt it again. I literally just want to click retry, nothing else.
In that time ive got students stood waiting or if its an overnight job which i set off before i leave ive got to sit here in the office staring at the printer for 40 minutes just to be able to click retry. Over the time ive had the printer its been literally hours and hours lost, its pretty crazy.
I understand the technical reason for it, but if i lose 2hrs a week to it for a full year then thats an unacceptable loss for me.
Oh and im on firmware 220.127.116.11.Edited by Super_paulie
@Tim_Cochrane @Super_paulie Are these printers with a Material Station? And which firmware version?
Stand-alone printers (no Material Station) do have the 'skip cool down' button, but for the Material Station we've to ensure the filament tip is in a good shape which requires the material to cool down.
