The ability to check prints when the platform is below the resin vat mid print. I've had a few failures now which makes me wish I can look at the platform during times when I can't see it to make sure everything is okay to restart it. Since Prusa has opted to use really nice linear bearings, it should be able to lift up the print to a visible level and return/resume printing with little to no misalignment. This would save alot of time instead of waiting an hour to find out that the print failed to keep on the platform.

Basically a pause feature that would pause the print, lift up to a pre-determined Z height to allow first layer examination, and return to its printer position and stir the resin to get rid of bubbles if there is any. In most of my printing cases the first cm is just the support structure so the risk of layer lines is acceptable.

Would be nice to check if the model is attached to the platform - Feature requests can be reported here: https://github.com/prusa3d/Prusa-Firmware-SL1/issues

Have a look at my designs on Thingiverse or on PrusaPrinters ;)...
