Has anyone able to disable the auto shutdown feature of this printer? I am trying to connect octopi but everytime I start a print, it eventually times out and shutdown. I was hoping the software was smart enough to detect there is a print job via the serial interface. I can't get any support by the manufacturer as they claim their don't have the firmware. It is is ridiculous that the board is a Rambo variant, and their tools are based on cura and pronterface but rebranded/customize. Kind of defeat the purpose of gpl. The printer is of good quality but it is really annoying you have to transfer the files onto an USB stick and transfer it to the machine. You would expect nowadays everything should be network. It is pain watching the mechanical guys walking from their desk to the printer with a USB stick. I wouldn't have chosen this printer due to the gpl violation but was bought by a previous employee that wanted local support (non existent support).
