Weird behaviour with Pause At Height plugin / Cura 2.61 (same with 2.5) / UM2+

Recommended Posts

Any and all help appreciated, as I really need to get this working!

The Pause At Height plugin seems to do this weird thing where it skips layers after the resume, has anybody else seen this?

This little test model is just a simple cylinder. Does the code look right? Or is it 1mm out? Or should this not matter seeing as LAYER21 has the correct Z value?

Also check out what it looks like when the gcode is loaded back into Cura - it has this strange really thick layer which extends down into the already printed part. This may just be graphical, however I thought I'd mention it in case it's relevant.

    • "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.
