Anyone else frustrated when you start a print that should finish just a little before the end of the day, except it doesn’t finish in time because that the printer takes an hour to fill the tank before beginning the print? Or, you want to print a small part that should finish in 30 minutes and you know there’s plenty of resin in the tank, but the printer still takes an hour to fill first anyway? We’ve got a Form 3 now, but I remember a similar frustration with our old Form 2 as well.
Why fill at the beginning of the print? Why not fill after the previous print has finished and the printer is sitting idle, that way the tank is full and ready when you start a new print?
It sure would be nice to have at least one of these options to solve this:
- Add an on-demand tank fill option - maybe Prime does this?
- Pop up an option to refill the tank after the previous print has finished. (And maybe initiate this automatically if no user input and the printer is idle for a few minutes?)
- Add an option to skip filling when starting a new print (and preferably have this option pop up immediately, so we don’t have to wait for heating to complete)
I think this has been requested by others in the past, but those requests have been closed for years. If you would also like to see this feature, please like or reply to this thread.
