Feature request: disable extruder heating when not needed

Sat Feb 09, 2019 4:58 am

Hi,

having a dual extruder printer, I've always to disable the 2nd extruder heating when printing with only the first. I think it should be possible to automatically disable the heating of a extruder when not needed.

Regards

Fully agree. It should be possible.

For example they can add a standby temperature. And if one nozzle is not used for the next 10 layer or next 5 min (this could be a seperated settings) than the set the nozzle to standby temperature

Thanks for the great thoughts, everyone! The discussion of automatically lowering the idle toolhead's temperature has been a hot topic in the past (viewtopic.php?f=23&t=6396). I'll keep an eye on both threads to document our community's continued interest in the topic.
