[Feature-Request] [ideaMaker] add cooling after xx mins inactive

Hi all,

I am wondering if it would be possible to add a second level of cooling?

So far I can set the temperature for the inactive extruder and the time to start heating again ahead. I would love to see a second level of cooling, so for example if inactive extruder is not used for the last xxx seconds/minutes etc then further cool down and to xxx temperature and add XXX sec/min. to preheat-time.

The reason I am asking is to avoid carbonization of for example BVOH. Sometimes my Raise3D-Pro-2 needs to print models where I need BVOH and when needed in every layer working with the first cool down is fine. Sometimes it's used rarely and to avoid carbonization I would love to add a second level of cool down. :)

Thanks a lot in advance,

Thomas

There is already a cooling option under Inactive Extruder, are you looking for a different option?

Hi Vicky,

I am thinking about a *second* level cool down. After having entered the current cooldown one may want to enter a second level of further cooldown for example to prevent carbonization of BVOH. Think about a model that requires support. May very often at the beginning of the print and then a long time not and then later again. So a long-term (second level) of cooldown could help here very easily. :)

There will be one concern that if cool down twice, the next heating will take very long to hit the target.

Correct and I get your point Vicky but that's easy to solve - for example in the same way like it is solved right now - with a field which accepts a numeric value in seconds for start heating up ahead. :)
