Keep bed heated after print?

Tue Jan 29, 2019 3:00 am

Hi All,

Cura has a feature which allows me to keep the bed heated after a print is finished. I can't launch it to check right at this moment but I thin iIt is just a checkbox called 'Keep Heating'

Does S3D have this option somewhere and I just haven't found it or would I have to edit gcode to add this?

I'm shocked how noone has replied to this question yet.
You can of course do this, just go into your profiles settings, select Scripts and then go to Ending Script.

Mine looks something like this:

Code: Select all

M104 S0 ; turn off extruder
M140 S0 ; turn off heatbed
M107 ; turn off fan

G92 E2.5
G0 X125 Y200 Z200 E0.0

M300 S880 P133; beep
M300 S0 P133; beep
M300 S880 P133; beep

M84 ; disable motors
As you can see, there is a line with a "turn off heatbed" comment. So just commenting this whole line out with ';' will make the headbed stay on.
Not as elegant and easy as a direct option, but not difficult.

Although, If you ever leave the printer unattended for longer periods (like a weekend) you should be careful, as this will wear out your print bed and electronics just as a longer print would - so PEI may get damaged sooner. Also, when removing prints from PEI, it should be completely cooled down - but glass and other surfaces should be fine.
