Hello all,

Is anybody knows if the plugin PauseAtHeight works with Cura now ?

If not, I don't really understand why this important tool has'nt been fixed, replaced or integrated in Cura yet.

I've not seen it in Cura 2.1 and no extrenal plugin integration too.

It's a big lack, others printers have this option for years !!!!!

Have you news about this ?

It could help me greatly, I've a lot of jobs impossible to do without this option.

Thank you anyway.

P.S. To had to the the PauseAtHeight could be the PauseAtLayerNumber

    The option is there. It's even mentioned in the manual.

    extensions -> post processing

     

    Thank you for your answer :) , sorry you're right, I finally found it, but after testing on a UM2Ext+, it does not work properly, :( it always does a retractation, and I have to compensate by hand, pushing the filament at the feeder.

    Maybe I missed something...

    I know Cura is free, so I don't want to be grumpy about that.

    I saw the efforts of the dev team on the new Cura 2.1 to give a lot of new very interresting tools.

    By the way, I would say the new version (+) has incredibly improved the quality/speed.

    It's a very good job from ultimaker team.

    I'm stuck in front of my prints now as there are beautiful !! :D

    You could change the script so the retraction doesn't happen anymore (or compensates after it)

     

    Thank you for your answer and sorry for my late answer, I was traveling.

    I will re-test it but I placed the retractation to 0, is it bad ? Have I to put a number to this retraction field ?

    I am in the process of dealing with the retraction issue as well going from part to part (which should be a similar problem to pausing/restarting). You can alternatively set retraction to 0 and wipe the nozzle on an existing part surface before horizontally moving it off the build surface (right before pausing) to help with the hairs. Cura by default has the z height increase after a pause/moving to next part. You may be introducing an issue of restarting the parts if any material oozes out during the pause, for which you would need to reprime before resuming.

    Is it possible to save post processing settings into the profile? In the old Cura, the plugin settings (eg. pause at height) were saved/loaded from profile. It doesn't seem to be the case with Cura2 though.

    No, not at the moment.
