Cura - Moving Z down after cancelling a print. Possible?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have a fresh Ultimaker here and Cura was working quite fine for my first tests.

But I was cancellings the prints often because something was wrong. Then I always had to move down the z-axis by hand. Is there another way?

In the beginning I used Repetier Host. There are all the options to move everything on the ultimaker. Are there options like this in Cura?

After canceling you can jog the Z axes with the jog menu (or just the Z buttons if you use PrintRun)

Not sure what you mean by "move", if you mean moving objects around on the bed, the "machine center" settings do this. Not very userfriendly, working on that.

If you mean placing multiple objects on a single print, checkout the project planner. (It's in the file menu of normal mode)

Just tried Printrun - when I try to connect (Com3@115200) I get this message:

Any idea how to fix that?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
