Cura 3.1 "Change at height".

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
