Turn heated bed off?

Is it possible the turn the bed off after a certain height (layers printed).

It seems pointless to have it off all the time wasting all that energy.

You may get premature part release

Or use custom before layer change gcode but as Joan said, probably not a great idea.

Yes. Right click the "+" button in the layer slider and use "add custom G-code" to add: "M140 S0" to turn of bed heating.

Depending on your material and type of plate you will get the object released from the plate, as Joan pointed out.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

Thanks, I didn't know you could do that. I will give it a try and see if it works and doesn't release. I don't think it will...
