I do a lot of quick prints.


Is there a way to make the printer self level and warm up the plate simultaneously?


Also is there, or could there be a setting to make the self leveling feature optional?

    The active leveling is sensitive to electronic noise but leveling will also fail if there any non-melted filament on the tip of the nozzle.  So the printer heats both cores and the bed every time but then cuts power to all 3 while leveling is happening.


    You can definitely disable the active leveling.  I did it on my S5 for a month.  The experience was pretty good.  The feature is not build into the screen but here is a tool to do it (which is what I used on my S5 - worked well).  Note that the first time you do manual leveling you should probably reboot right after as I forget now but it did something strange on the first print after the first leveling after switching to manual.
