Pro2: Move bed downwards for filament change

Postby atelieroechsli » Fri Feb 21, 2020 12:09 pm

Hello there, I have a suggestion for an option during the filament change.

Scenario: the filament runs out during the first layers, i.e. during printing of the 4th layer the system stops due to the run out of the filament.

Today: the print head moves to the parking position, you get a nice eMail from the cloud, telling you it's time for a new spool. When you unload the filament and load the filament, it is necessary extrude some filament. But the nozzle is only a few millimeters above the surface of the bed. So it is quite difficult to remove that before you continue printing. The nozzle is "bathing" in filament.

Solution: an option would be nice to move the bed a couple of centimeters down when you unload or load the filament to avoid these situations.

Please consider to add that to the firmware. Thanks :)
