What is the UM2 pause command gcode?

Recommended Posts

@tinkergnome, I am using Octoprint and when I pause a print the head stay still in the last position, and I really don't like it..


Is it possible to pause the printer in the same way in which the firmware does while printing with SD card and controlling using the printer menu directly?


I have tried to send M0 and M25 commands through octoprint, but with no success..


Many thanks in advance!

Since you are using OctoPrint, you can have that take the role of the firmware to do more than just pause execution of firmware. Instead of sending a gcode command to pause printing, you would send “@pause”. On the OctoPrint side of things, look in to pause and resume scripts.

Thanks a lot @ahoeben, I looked into it and found the suggested basic script.


It works but I still have a small issue..I have modified my Ultimaker 2+ with the Mark2 firmware and it now has 2 extruder. This created problem with the temperature target after pausing. The temperature drops and I can´t get it back to original target...any idea?


I will write in the dedicated forum as well but in case someone can help, it will be really appreciated!

    • "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.
