better if Speed Factor resets at end of print?
AFAIK currently speed factor, if set to 150%, remains at 150% until machine restarts. I've encountered this on CNC mills and routers for and it only seems to serve to catch me out. I don't check how the person before me left it. Nor do I remember that I may have changed it myself. Modding the speed is something myself I'd only do partway into a job on a situational basis and when the job's over well a new day begins. For my money it would only save unfortunate mistakes if the Speed Factor, set in DWC, reset to 100% when print ends.
What do you think?

I agree, but that is also possible in the endcode of the cnc-program. Better ask your local guy, who makes the program, if he can implement the speed reset there.
@o_lampe Great idea!
in my end scripts right now.

@r123 Even better, put it in Start.g too (might have to create the file in the sys directory as I'm not sure it's there by default). This gets called when you start a job, before anything else in the file is run. That way you know it is set back to 100% no matter what has been done on the machine during the last job (or even since the last job was finished!)
@engikeneer good thinking
