a suggestion for PRUSA ...

When starting a print on my i3 mk3s the printer waits until the bed and nozzle are fully heated until it starts the bed leveling process.  Why not do the bed leveling process while the bed and nozzle are heating up so that the print can start printing sooner?

the bed moves due the thermal expansion as it heats - waiting even longer ( till the pinda is heated by the hotend/bed) is even better

You can modify the startup routine in the start g-code section in PrusaSlicer. Many of us use a 2 step nozzle warmup process to avoid oozing for example. Here's my example.

Thanks for the responses, I guess nothing is ever as simple as it seems.
