Nozzle and bed heating.....

Nozzle and bed heating.....

Does heating the nozzle to load/unload filament still also heat the bed as well on the MK4??

Not sure why this is so - why heat the bed to load/unload filament? Surely its just the nozzle that needs heating, right? 

Seems like unnecessary power usage and extra wear on the bed heater.....

I don't have a Mk4 but on the XL it's now an option.

At the MK4 there is also an option in the menu if you want to preheat also the bed when you just want to change filament. So it is up to you, what do you prefer.

I noticed that, too.

Question is where is that option to turn that off?
