UM3 - Cura 3.04 - Pause on Height not work


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 - Cura 3.04 - Pause on Height not work



I try to pause a print with UM3 and Cura 3.0.4 at a certain height, in order to a bearings, etc.

I tried the plug-in "Pause at height".

 - Pause height = 1mm

- Park print head X = 190mm

- Park print head Y = 190mm



Unfortunately, the UM3 does not pause at 1mm. It doesn't pause at all.


How should I configure and use the Plug-In correctly?

    There was a bug in Cura 3.0.4 and 3.1 when using post processing in combination with the network printing (for UM3). These are fixed in 3.2 (Beta due in 1 week). This should solve your issue. In the mean time you can try exporting the G-code to USB and print over USB (as a test). If that also doesn't work there's another bug that we don't know about yet.

    Hi ctbeke,


    thanks a lot!


    The pause works completely fine once the G-Code is transferred via USB-Stick. Even export it to G-Code and import it again works over ethernet.
