  1. Actually there is a even better tutorial related to this editing of Gcode https://static.shoplightspeed.com/shops/608811/files/008600801/restarting-a-stopped-print-tutorial.pdf
  2. Good points mate. After little googling i found these which might help me... lets see https://reprap.org/wiki/Mulitcolour_printing_with_one_hotend https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rh7VmjOLo0I The idea with the excel was quite the same than the second link shows with cura, but the file would just be splitted into two.
  3. Big thanks gr5 for quick reply. And really good points. 1. That is a good idea. Ill have to buy that tape. It seems also that for example PLA can be printed straight on ABS bed without heated bed as well. Have to try that as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ls2m7F-d42s 2. Sadly I think there isn't this feature available for Anet A8 printer. Only pause and continue if the power has not been turned off. Also the head bed must be turned off manually. I would like to turn everything off. 3.I'm planning to use this trick of course with some bigger and more complicated jobs. Any idea can the home position be edited form somewhere? so it would always start as high as possible for example. 4. This manual editing of the Gcode sounds quite easy and that was actually the reason why i was curious why it is not as an standard feature of slicer applications. It could be relatively easy even to do excel macro in VB for this to split the code once sliced. Actually that might be the way to go with this one if no app can do it. It would be nice though to see the parts in visual 3d of the slicer tool
  4. Hi, Does anyone know how is there a free software to do the same than Simplify3d can do? https://www.simplify3d.com/support/articles/different-settings-for-different-regions-of-a-model/ I would like to split the sliced code into multiple pieces so that i could shot down the printer and resume the print when ever i want. I know that i might have some issues with material shrinkage and and bet to cold, but i would like to still try this with PLA which should work at some level at least. So basically i would like to 1.print the first part with first GCODE-file 2. park the hot end up left so that it won't foul with the print if it comes from 0,0,0 3. Shut down whole machine for a day or week. (All power off from bed and hot end.) 4.warm the bed / hot end. 5. continue to print the second part where the first one finished with a second GCODE-file.
