Hi, would like to mention the latest updates have been great!
Some future suggestions -
- I know this has been mentioned before, but a True “Full” infill would be a huge hit!
-A more conservative standby mode- no lights, or fan if possible.
-Not sure if this is already implemented cause i usually walk away from my machine after starting the print,
But if the Bed, and the Extruder could both heat simultaneously.
-The addition of the hours of operation meter is great, perhaps integrate reminders on the screen at certain hour intervals (i.e. 25, 50, 75, and 100) for lubrication, nozzle cleaning, and other recommended services incase its overlooked, extending the durability and reliability of the printer.
- Control where the seam will be on the part / parts.
Question for the engineers would be, does the Zortrax M200 have any safety measures built in? Such as thermocouples that detect and turn off the printer in the event of some sort of thermal runaway, or possible hazardous situation?
In addition to that question, is the logic board able to detect if the stepper motors are pulling more amps then usual? If it could, this would be a great way to detect possible filament entanglements (common with spools currently), so when the tangled filament occurs the extruder motor would see increased resistance due to the filament not feeding, the increased draw of current to the motor could be then interpreted as a impending failure. This could then result in the printer automatically pausing, and beep / with flashing light, and/or abort the print in the event of the operator not being present after a prolong period of time, saving material and improving reliability, and safety.
