When my hot end heats up first, it drools while waiting for the bed to heat up.
When the bed heats up first... well, nothing bad happens!
I believe that the machine would know how long each takes to heat, and start heating the bed first, then start heating the hot end at just the right time so that they both reach temp at the same time. Short of a "smart" solution, a simple offset like "start heating hot end when bed reaches 90% of target" would work great. Less drooling, more clean bases!
Fantastic! I can wait until 1.6.
I'd also be very happy to use the Raspberry Pi or C.H.I.P. to do it, right now they are gathering dust. And the CHIP is less than the esp8266 (but more lead time), and has a nice USB port on it.
I'd like to not have my (OSX) laptop stuffed in the corner of the garage USB tethered to the (Rostock Max v2) printer. I've got a raspberry pi, and the even cheaper C.H.I.P. computer. Both have built-in USB and WiFi. Question: How do I "proxy" to the printer over wifi? I'm fine not slicing on the raspberry or CHIP, I realize it takes a lot of ram. But I do like everything the MatterControl software gives me - temperature, software-based 7 point leveling, etc.
So - has anyone been able to cut the cord? I hear octoprint is nice, but then do I lose all the nice mattercontrol perks?
