    Hello! Tell me, please, is there any way to successfully pause 3D printing and turn off the printer completely, and then continue the next day?

    New Marlin firmware adapted the method that Creality uses where you can turn on SD card recovery. It keeps track of last gcode executed for a job then when power is lost and restored gives you the ability to continue. Now, that will shorten the life of the SD. It also doesn't mean the print won't come loose as the bed cools. My R1+ when it cools the glass bed will often pop the print off. So not fool proof.
