Change how extruder temperatures are handled after Unload

Postby jon_bondy » Tue Feb 13, 2018 8:47 pm

Typically, after you Unload filament from an extruder, you will Load new filament soon. At the moment, after you Unload filament, the extruder is allowed to cool down, so that by the time you load the new filament, you have to wait, needlessly.

I suggest that the extruder remain heated for (say) 3 minutes before you allow it to cool down. If, during those 3 minutes, the user wants to Load new filament, then the extruder will be at the right temperature, and there will be no delays

Under Settings -> More Settings -> Advanced Settings, there has an option called Cool down after loading or unloading filament.
Disable this option, then the nozzle won't stop heating under exit the loading/unloading process.
