    With my XXL LCD now installed, I have been using MC to load my prints onto SD and them print from SD. Pretty cool. The LCD is something to get used to, but it does the job required of it, and frees up my PC to do other things which I like.

    I have noticed one peculiarity when using the SD card however, and that is that when a job is done, my bed heater does not turn off, it remains set at the temp the print ran at (usually 50 on PLA). Why is this happening only when running from the LCD?

    My solution right now is a manual fix, that im not crazy about and that is at the end of a print, i go in through LCD and turn the bed heater manually down to 0.

    Any thoughts gang?

    Add the following to the ending GCode in your slicer.

    M104 S0 ; make sure the extuder is turned off.
    M140 S0 ; make sure the bed is turned off.
    M84 ; shut down motors.



    There are alternatives if you are using S3D, but these are generic.

    Mark - Thank you! Adding

    to the 'End GCode Script' was just what the doctor ordered. The G Code in MC was only set to turn the extruder off by default, not the bed too. I'm good to go now, problem solved!
