Fast Preheat Symbol on the Touchscreen

It would be really nice to have a Preheat Symbol in the main menu, heating up the machine is annoyingly slow and awkward.

Do you mean it’s inconvenient to tell if the machine is preheating or the preheating process is too slow?

There should be a shortcut symbol in the main menu for pre heating. Right now I have to go to controlles, then the machine is honing then I have so select the hotend and scroll for the right Temperatur then the bed and again scrolling for the right temp.
Would be niche to just have a symbol an the main menu. Press it and then there should be different materials like PLA and ABS and when I press that the the hotend just heats to 200° and the bed to 40° for example

It’s not a bad idea and I have thought that myself. Saying that, once the machine had booted up I normally load a file then go anyways so I would still have to wait for it to warm up either way.

Oh I got it. I’ll pass your suggestion to our R&D team :blush:.

It would be far better if your company were to keep its promises and make the source code to the touchscreen available. You’d get a changeset from the community in short order.
