Failed print - time to launch a new one

Recommended Posts

Posted · Failed print - time to launch a new one

Everytime I have a material feed problem at the beginning of a print, I need to wait something like 15 min before I can start a print again. Solving the material issue takes a few seconds, and then the printer just doesn't let me do anything for a while. Why is that? Could you implement a step where we can actually solve the issue manually before stopping the print?

    I'm guessing the print bed temp is well over 60C for these prints?  The bed has to cool to I think 50C before heating up again which is for safety reasons but really crazy in this example which happens to me often.  I was even putting a towel over the print bed to slow down the cooling because I didn't realize it was waiting to cool the print bed (message was not clear - didn't mention that it was waiting to cool) so I even made the problem worse until I figured it out.


    If this is the issue you are seeing then you can save a LOT of time by disabling this cooldown feature using this very simple tool here:
