Encasing a Part into the print?

Recommended Posts

Yes. What printer are you using? what cura version are you using?

UM2 family printer you can go into tune and pause during the print.

there are also plugins that you can use called pause-at-z where you can set in cura a height where the printer will pause.

I am using a Creality 3D® CR-10 (CV-10 printer) large format printer and Cura 2.3.1.

What plug in do I need to do the pause-at-Z setting? Is there a function that moves the print head to 0, like the Change Filament controller function does , so the print head is not in the way that could possibly throw off the head tracking off?

Looking at the G-Code in notepad I noticed at the beginning of each layer the layer number is commented into the code. So I can insert the require code by using notepad (or some other word processor). I can determine the layer number using Curas layers view mode. Then using notepads find function I can find the required layer in the code. Then it's a simple matter of insert the required G-Code. Meaning I only need the G-Code to pause and move the nozzle out of the way (like moving nozzle to 0 X-Axis).

Any help is appreciated!:)
