This is a multi part question. First, is there any disadvantage to dropping the bed temp after the first few layers of a print? It seems like most of the power consumption for an A350 is keeping the bed hot. I’m running a 20+ hour print right now, and it would be a nice power savings to turn the bed off after everything is stuck down and the print head is far enough off the bed to not be influenced by the heated bed.
Second, can SM do this? Cura has a setting for build plate temperature initial layer separate from the regular temp, but I remember reading somewhere that Snapmaker doesn’t accept this instruction.
Third, if turning off the bed heat is possible and not harmful to the print, how tall does the print need to be before turning of the bed? Is first layer like in Cura enough? The print I’m running now is 190mm high, so even if I had to leave the bed on for the first 50mm, there would still be a lot of savings killing the bed heater for the last 140mm.
