No shutdown after computer automatic turn off

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just something to think about:

Yesterday, my i did my first long print 20+ hours ultra q.

At some point in the night, my #}%^^%# computer decided it was time to go to sleep and while running printrun and printing it shut down.

The hot end was stopped on top of my model and melted down on in... Now that is not my main concern (although it was printing for over 16 hours) my concern is that the hotend without pc is still 230 degrees! Risk of fire? I am not sure, can anyone tell me?

I hope my preorded ultipanel is the solution to this... But the wait on that... +3 weeks and counting

Thx

Risk of fire: No. I have seen prints from 48h without any catching fire. But its good to have some sort of auto-shutdown just in case.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
