Since the main power is a physical switch, unrelated to the other controls, an outright full-shutdown seems impractical. (Without major redesign) A far simpler solution that could address most user concerns would be to add options to shut down the fans, lights, etc, after a print has completed. A delay could be set, allowing the fans to cool down the print head; prior to shutting off. Since the fans can be shut off via G-code, that would seem to be the easiest fix.
I wouldn’t mind seeing an additional option to turn the fans off, during initial hot-end heat up. The cooling extends the time required to reach desired temp; especially when printing with high-temp plastics. For Polycarbonate blends, I tend to insert a Teflon strip between the fan exhaust and heat sync block, then remove it once temp is reached. (Annoying that I can shut down the fans, during my print, via G-code; but can not do so, during filament load and pre-print heatup) While blocking the fan works, it is a pain. It also allows heat to escape from the enclosure; when I am trying to maintain a warm environment, to reduce warping.
To Vicky and/or other Raise3D reps; would this be a feasible option for you to incorporate into not only the new Pro2, but also the N2 series, via firmware update?
