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..

    • "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.
