Posted · change color by adjusting G-code


I have a UM2+ and a UM2Go and i'am using Cura 3.1. now. I'am wondering if it is posible too change color by adjusting and chaging the G-code. The "pause" function does work but when i try the "change color" function it does'nt.

    As far as i can see this script inserts a M600 command at the beginning of the specified layers.

    That's something that the UM2 printer family does not support and does not need.


    M600 does nothing more than retracting the filament and pausing the printer.

    I guess it's there to support printers that do not have a builtin "Change filament" function.


    For the UM2 you can just use the pause script and change the filament with the help of the printers menu functions.
