Looks interesting. Seems like a simple make with a servo and stepper motor. Probably could get it to work with an Arduino or raspberry pi.

    Glass works pretty well with this. I guess with the newer printers, you just need something to press the button for removed print. The rest can be done with end gcode probably.

    Not really, for the printer it is still one job. 

    But I haven't tried it myself with an S-Line printer, but did it with an UM2+

    Duplicated the gcode multiple times and put the "eject" code in between.

    But needs some tinkering, you have to include a delay that the bed can cool down to release the object, otherwise it will not work with a model with a bigger bottom surface.

    Just to stick my nose in...do the UM printers support M32 and G4?  If they do then you can print a main file and have it call secondary files.  The G4 would be in there someplace in between to allow the bed to cool.  The code below uses the DOS 8.3 filenames that I would use on my printer.

    You would print a file something like this "Caller.gcode" file which would call "Real Print.gcode" and "BullDozer.gcode".

     

    StartUp Gcode runs and then:

    M32 P !REALPR~1.GCO#

    M140 S0

    G4 S300
    M32 P !BULLDO~1.GCO#

    M190 S60
    M32 P !REALPR~1.GCO#

    M140 S0

    G4 S300
    M32 P !BULLDO~1.GCO#

    M190 S60

    M32 P !REALPR~1.GCO#

    M140 S0

    G4 S300
    M32 P !BULLDO~1.GCO#

    Ending Gcode runs

     

    There would be some other hand coding involved but it's doable IF the gcode commands are supported.  You might need a door opener though.

    Good idea but I am not sure UM supports it.

    I've used Continous print on octoprint and that works well. It has a gcode that it adds for the removal process depending on the bed temperature. Most people print a bumper for the printhead so it doesn't mess anything up
