Small bug in the software if 'pause' AND 'abort'

Posted · Small bug in the software if 'pause' AND 'abort'

Just hit a little bug in the UM2 software.

Did a 'Pause', which parked the head and retracted the filament, examined the build, then decided to 'Abort', which homed the head and retracted the filament.

Two retraction events!

Took me a while when I started the next print to work out why I had no extrusion for a minute or two. Two retraction events had pulled the filament several cm away and it took time to reach the head again.

    Yes this has been there a while. you may just have to wait til the first of July :p

    Not sure if its fixed in the new upcoming cura version though.

    You can just turn the printer off after aborting it and push the filament in by hand before you start the next print.

    I second this motion. These bugs are driving me crazy! so what happens on Jul 1? New firmware?! :)


    @wdwms - just a suggestion:

    You should report this issue on GitHub, that's the direct way to get in touch with the firmware developers.

    Just follow the link, sign in and open a "New issue" with the green button.
