Pause option/plate level?

Recommended Posts

Is there a pause option during the 3d printing process? and if so does the bed lower when the printing process is paused?

Edited the topic (title too long).

Yes you can pause and yes the plate goes down a bit. (Assuming you are talking about Ultimakers)

Is it possible for the plate to go down completely when paused and then resume on the ultimaker?I need that function for my project.

If not are there any other desktop 3d printers whose plates fully go down when paused?

Easier would be to just use the pause plug in and manually add the z move distance for extra lowering (and back up) to the G-code. ...

gcode is very easy to edit. Just read it with your eyes and you can figure it out. Z is the up and down direction - that's mostly the only thing you need to know.
