Cura - Pause at Height and material change

Recommended Posts

Hey There

Two questions.


I have been experimenting with the post processer in Cura 2.5 "Pause at height".

But it seems like I cant get the hang of it how it works....

I put in a height = 5.0 mm which equals 25 layers, since all layers are 0.2mm...

But doing so ain't stopping it in layer 25, but in 24, giving me a missing layer...

What height should I use?? How is this height measured?

2. When using the Cura function Pause at height to I want to change material.. I normally do that without the using the "change material" function. I simply just pull back my material and attach a new one (I changed the feeder to an iRoberti).

When resuming my print it doesn't extrude filament, even I did push that much through that the new color was extruded...

What should I do to fix that? The ultimaker doesn't "know" that I changed the filament..

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
