Resuming a failed print on UM3

Recommended Posts

I have just run a huge 24h print om my Ultimaker 3. Sadly it failed at late point in the middle of the night, filament got stuck and ground in the extruder, with the printer continuing printing in mid-air.

On my previous, simpler printers, I have been able to fool it to resume by editing G-code to start at a meased height. The UM3, however, is so full of bells and whistles, like the auto-leveling etc, and I cannot come up with a smooth way of doing this. The print head will crash into the huge print on the bed, and its all together a complicated task.

Any ideas how this could be done?

Perhaps a future feature idea here, to create such a function in Cura.. skipping the calibration, just homing in and continuing the print.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
