Ultimaker 2

Cura 15.04.02

Resolution 0,2mm

Hi everyone, i have a very weird issue with the machine, i hope someone can help me.

here is my problem, i want top use 3 colors in my print, so i added 2 instance of the plugin "pause at height" in cura. The first at 0.8mm and the 2nd at 1.4mm. the final object is 1.6mm thick (it's a coaster)

When it arrive at 0.8mm , the printer pause, i hot swap the filament (i dont use filament change options), hit "resume print", then the machine go to position where its supose to continue printing, but then it retract the filament for something like 30cm!.. Then go back to pause without moving. When i hit "resume print" again it push the same amount of filament and continue printing. The second instance of pause at height (at 1.4mm) dont even work, it continue printing till the end.

I tried changing the retraction amount in the plugin from 5mm to 0.5mm, but it printed just the same.

Here is the Gcode

    That problem I had too recently. Solution is: You have to define the stops in reverse order! first instance pause at 1,4mm, second instance pause at 0,8mm. I don't remember where I found that info, it was somewhere documented. Anyway, after that change, everything worked fine for me.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
