Pause at height plug in does not pause

Posted · Pause at height plug in does not pause

I would like to use the "pause at height" plug in so as to stop the print half way. This would allow me to invert the print and then print from the other end and join in the middle. This can make supports unnecessary apparently for complex prints

However the plugin does not seem to work. When setting the pause at a given height eg 10mm, and with a layer height of 0.1mm, I should see the print head park itself at layer 100. This does not happen in the preview and when I tried the print for real, it did not pause

Is the plug in broken?

    Posted · Pause at height plug in does not pause

    I tried to use the "pause at height" plug in today because I wanted to insert a temporary support for the overhanging part. I didn't have time to watch the machine al the time so I left and when I returned I noticed that the first part was rotated 20 degrees around the Z axis and the UM2 was busy prinitin the second part in the original direction.

    Did it pause and automatically continue?

    Did it pull my object with it when pausing at x,y 0;0?

    Am I using the plug in wrong?

    Can anyone help?

    thanks in advance,

    Martijn
