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).
