Stop/ Pause Printer after Heater Fault
As customers have repeatedly drawn my attention to the following, I would now like to find a solution.
As soon as a printer switches off the hotend or the heating bed in the event of a heater fault, it would be good if the printer paused or stopped and did not simply continue to print.
How can you do this?
Is that still possible with RRF 2??? -> because I have a lot of printers with this RRF2 at the customers.
I would be very happy if there was a solution ...
Thanks and best regards

Unless you are using very old firmware, it already does. Use the M570 S parameter to define how long it stays paused for before it tries to shut the printer down.
At the moment i use RRF 2.05 ... does it work with it?
Ok, then it may not work with my setup, since I control the printer via USB from a higher-level server .... would it be possible for USB-print to?

I don’t like printing over night because it’s noisy and I just don’t like it. Looking for ways I can pause and restart prints over a long period of time without keeping the printer always on.
@alfred0809 Please start a new thread.
Would it be possible to send a command via serial to the server at a heater fault?
It also works for other triggers too...
@dc42 Ok ... and how could I use it to send a serial command?
For the Filament-sensor and the door-Sensor we made it like that:
I call a trigger with M581 ->
And then I send
M118 P1 S"// action:pause"
it would be great if I could also trigger such an event with the heater fault...
hello again ...
so would it somehow be possible to trigger an action with a heater fault (trigger trigger1.g) like triggering a filament sensor or something similar?
Then it would possible for me to send a pause to my server via USB.
