I have two Prusa MK2 and tomorrow I'll get my gMax I live in my apartment with wife and kids and some days I cant print 24/7, my wife doesn't like the sound of the printers while she's practicing her yoga for example.
Are there anyone out there who's successfully have paused a print at evening for example and resuming it the next morning? I'm using OctoPrint for my current printers and I've managed to pause/resume a print through octopi with some smart gCodes "at pause" and "at resume". It retracts 10mm and move to home, when resuming it extrudes 10mm and return to the last same coordinates it was paused at. It seems to work for a 10 min pause, but it doesn't turn the heat bed off or the nozzle heat / nozzle fan. I'm sure it can be made with some more tweaking of gCodes, but when I get my gMax I will be pretty forced to be able to pause/resume the prints. Before we ordered the gMax we looked at some industrial grade printers which had these functions.
Has anyone experienced anything with this? Maybe its built into the gMax Firmware?
