Cura 3.1 "Change at height".

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.1 "Change at height".

I have been using Cura 15 with the "Change at Z" plugin and it works great to change filament colors during print. I started using Cura 3.1 and I love it! But I can't find a way to change filament. I found something that they say is now called "Change at height" which sounds like it should work, but I can't find it anywhere.

I did find a "Change at Z" version 3 that was supposed to work and I downloaded it. But I can't figure out how to install it in 3.1.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any help!

There are post processing scripts available to pause at height or tweak at Z. The first could easily be used to change filament. 

 

You'll find the scripts under main menu item "Extensions" -> "Post Processing" -> "Modify G-Code" and then add the script of your choice.

Having messed with them, you may well want to try them all before using them on something big. Many of them have odd behaviors, I found the one that worked for me after trial and error.
