This topic isn’t new, the forum reported a half dozen like it. But since the feature hasn’t been implemented (that I’m aware of), I figured to ask again…
My Form3 lives in my workshop, which is in my basement, which I heat to 64ºF. The printer is loaded with Tough 2000. Every time I go to start a print, during the first ~15 minutes of the pre-fill operation, when the mixer sweeps happen, the resin is too cold/viscous and the mixer disconnects. If I’m not there to watch it, the printer eventually complains the mixer is detached and it refuses to start the print. So I have to stand there waiting for it to do a sweep, so I can pop open the cover and push the mixer back in to alignment/engagement. I then have to apply a little pressure to keep it from coming loose again while the sweep completes. But after the printer has been running for a bit, the resin loosens up and everything works as expected.
It’s a pain in the *ss to have to stand there for 15 minutes every time I start a new print.
There’s a “prime” function to enable a remotely started job. It’d be really handy if there was a Preheat function so I could warm the machine up before it attempts to do anything, so I could be sure it’ll succeed without me having to stand there and mind it.
