Turn Off

Postby Cobra XTC » Thu Feb 08, 2018 10:12 am

I would like to be able to switch off the printer via the touch display. I think that would be very meaningful.

I have an Elgato Eve connected to the outlet. So now I say "Hi Siri. Turn off my Replicator". :)

I have a spark arrester closed that works very well too. But I would prefer the option in the display. Since in my opinion a correct driving down is always better.

This request has been asked for a lot and the answer is no on the current machine. No a firmware update cannot implement this because the power supply on/off is not in any way connected to any of the control boards. It requires a change to the entire system of control boards, a second power supply needs added to standby power the front panel computer, on and on. This is a very complex modification on the current design.

Again, perfectly fine to request this, it's been requested more times than I can count. However, don't expect it on the current hardware with only firmware update.

As you see, this has forced other members to do it externally.

Again, the problem there is, the front panel LCD with no standby power supply cannot turn on, send a command and boot up. Yes, the pcDuino board has a battery, but you will also notice that just after a few days of being off, the battery is slowly being discharged even in the off state. This is why a standby power mod would be required because again, even if we had a firmware update, even if the screen woke up, if the main PSU is off, the battery is draining. Eventually you would get to the point the battery is dead and you couldn't turn the machine back on. It's not "impossible" to mod this, it's just that requires a lot more thought and engineering than some of the requesters may have first assumed.

Like Noren, my alternative is a smart plug. It offers me 6 methods to turn ON/OFF the Raise3D

1 / Voice : With Google Home
2 / RFID glued on wall ($1.5 the sticker)
3 / On PC : with IFTTT
4 / On mobile with smart plug App (I use SmartLife)
5 / On mobile with Google Assistant (text or voice)
6 / On mobile with IFTTT

...sometimes I use my right hand to push switch on back

I use a Smart life wifi plug (paid $35) but a cheap smart plug $13 can do the job.
