Pause at layer Plug-in ?

Recommended Posts


I would like to know if there is a plug-in that you enable the printer to pause at a certain layer. In multiple part printing, that would allow for example to make sure the build plate is ready for the next part (for instance, you could put some glue at that point, without being constantly looking at when the previous part is nearly finished and manually pause).

I am quite new in 3D printing so I haven't looked much into gcode yet, could anyone help me out providing guidelines for writing such a plug-in or provide one that would exist already.

Thank you in advance,

    • "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.
