I want to measure printing time,

Knot/filament blocking sensor

Auto off switch

Yes, interested too, to help with develepment.

Got Octopi working yesterday on my CreatR HS. Very easy to to!

Please note that any change and alteration you make to the printer which can cause issues later on means that the warranty will be void.
