Hi

I would like to suggest a small addition to the "change material" procedure, to add 2min timeout to the screen where it sits and wait for you to put in the new material.

Why?

We have two UM2 at our Makerspace, and on multiple occations people have been unloading their filament but forgetting to cancel on the screen, wich results in that the printer is sitting with the hotend at 210 degrees until the next person is coming to print on the printer, wich is a recipe to get really nasty clogs... :/

A few minutes timeout would help here to avoid the UM2 hotend sitting there heated for sometimes hours when people forget!

    Yes, but it would also diminish our flock of members, so it is probably not a good idea, a software solution would be handier ;)

    This is still a VERY requested feature from us at Stockholm Makerspace, i have spent way too much time cleaning nozzles to fix UM2's with underextrusion problems due to carbonized plastic in the nozzle, mostly because of above problem.

    A few minutes timeout would solve the problem perfectly, please think about introducing this feature, right now we are thinking of forking the firmware and doing the modifications ourselves just to spare us all the unnecessary hours of printer cleaning...

    Hi Erik,

    there is hope...

    You could make a test with the latest version of the tinker firmware and/or discuss and endorse this pull request.

    Greetings to Stockholm from the tinker cave...
