Automatic shut-off after printing

Postby wph » Thu Oct 25, 2018 9:06 am

I wonder: after printing is done, is there a possibility to insert a cooldown time for the extruder (lets say 15 min.) and then automaticly shut off the main power? Can this be done by G-code? This would be very usefull when using long printtimes.

Not with the current setup. The power switch is not software controlled and therefore needs to be manually switched off.
