Cura - Pause at Height and material change

Posted (edited) · Cura - Pause at Height and material change

Hey There

Two questions.

1.

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..

Regards

    Are you sure the first layer isn't higher then the other layers?

    Note that instead of the height, you can also enter the layer number.

    I am sorry, I was confusing Pause at Height and Tweak at Z.

    I guess Pause at Height pauses *before* the layer at the height you enter. If you want to pause *after* that layer, you will have to enter 5.2 (like you do in the screenshot).

      • 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
